I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of Stephannie Tallent‘s newest addition to her Wild West design series, Lace 2. I couldn’t wait to get the Steller’s Jay shawl onto my needles! I love the colors in the fingering weight Baah “La Jolla” yarn, Blue Iris colorway. They perfectly evoke the colors in the Steller’s Jay which lives in Arizona (and other Western regions) and that Stephannie took her inspiration from.
I wanted just a bit more depth to the back of the shawl, and so added a few more short rows than the pattern calls for.
Here it is on the blocking board:
