Sand and Sea Shawlette

September 19

I adore the book Coastal Knits by the incredibly talented duo of Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig. I couldn’t wait to make Alana’s design, “Sand and Sea Shawlette”. For one thing, its gorgeous. For another, its inspired by an area here in California’s Central Coast I know and love well – Morro Bay.

I made the shawlette from Madelinetosh’s Tosh Lace and Tosh Sock. The Tosh Lace makes for a feather-light shawlette body; I’d like to try my next shawlette in the slightly heavier Prairie, which is what’s called for in the pattern.

Sand and Sea is easy to make, and I love the super-feminine look.

I never tire of  Madelinetosh’s color Amber Trinket; different lighting picks up a whole range of subtle colors, from purple to rust to taupe and more.

I wouldn’t want to admit to being obsessed with this pattern or anything. But I already have the yarn to make another.

Er, make that two more.
