My original plan for this yarn was the WestKnits Mystery KAL, this didn't actually happen. I planned to start after the first two clues had been released, but when I saw what was knitting up I decided it really wan't my style. With that in mind I searched for another Stephen West pattern that would use all the colors that I had purchased.
On my trip to New York I picked up WestKnits Shawls Book 1 so I took a gander through the book and decided on Garter Breeze. This is the striped version of Smooth Move and I am absolutely in LOVE! I knew the colors were going to look amazing together but this just makes me smile every time I go to put it on.
I worked with all Madelinetosh yarns (for the main colors), I picked these up on a yarn crawl/road trip with my knit group, two are madtosh sock and the other two are madtosh twist light. These colors worked perfectly with Stephen's signature short row construction with a finishing i-cord.
The colors for the madtosh are Jade, Torchere, Found Pottery and Plunge. I did run out of my main color (found pottery) and added in orange Sweet Georgia in Tough Love Sock, I'm so happy I had this on hand and it matched well with the other colors.
My i-cord was knit with leftover yarn from another WestKnits project; which again, this grey just fit perfectly as the finishing touch. I am enamored with how finished shawls look with an i-cord edging, just a step up with how clean the lines are. As always, there will be a new WestKnits shawl on the needles soon!
