joining my first cal

need a birthday gift for my niece so i’m joining a kal (cal) for a space shawl with some lovely soft yarn stashed ages ago from eat sleep knit. ( i get a lot of my doll yarn from there. the malabrigo lace is perfect for the tinies and sooo soft. this colorway just didn’t work out and i couldn’t bear to give it away so i’ts been sitting in my stash for years!)

Esk space shawl swatch
this is just the swatch to check my hook size. and i’ll use it to make sure i have the right blue tone, before i dye the whole shawl

the color way looks prettier/brighter than it really is, and it really doesn’t do the pattern justice, i’m more into tone on tone than variegated yarns lately. but the yarn is so nice i’m going to over dye it blue once i’m done to make a lovely purple and black tone on tone shawl.

i’m going to
