Folk Shawls, this time with long tails and an altered application of the lace pattern. I enjoy doing variations on a theme. There seems to be endless possibilities in some ideas. It's sort of like shawls that exist in parallel universes; they are similar but each has a life of its own. This one is definitely red, Crimson to be exact, in my Dancing Colors hand-dyed yarn. Crimson is one of the Reflections colors, tonal, with highlights but with not too much color variation. I prefer this for lace patterns as I hate to see my lace work disappear into a swarm of colors. Just me.
And off the needles last night, another Goodie Bag Hat using Noro Kureyon is great earth tones.
It's a gift for my Dear Fellow who has been asking if guys can wear the Goodie Bag Hat too. A hint, I believe? I think it's pretty good in these colors. More rugged but still fun. I'll definitely take it if he's not crazy for it, though I think he'll look mighty handsome in it. I might be prejudiced, do you think?
