This photo shows the colors fairly well. I think I need to put a white cloth over the foam mat the next time I take a pic.
I still happen to like my handmade stitch markers the best. No fuss, no muss and free and the lace does not get caught on them. What else could one want.
The other shawl is being knit from hand-dyed roving, spun by my in-house spinner, my daughter. The pattern is called "Waves of Leaves Shawl" and the designer is Ijeoma Oluo. The pattern can be found for free on Ravelry.
The pattern is quite easy to knit. I think this shawl would also look stunning in either Kauni or JoJo Land.
