Barndom - a test knit

At the end of May Stephen asked if I wanted to test knit another shawl. Do I ever! The pattern was released just recently, so now I can show my version of it here.

pattern: Barndom by Stephen West

yarn: Madeline Tosh Merino Light in Flashdance (420yds) and Amber Trinket (324yds): it was the first time for me using this yarn. It's wonderful to work with, and I loved both colorways. Even though they are not "my" colors, I like it, but it's going to be gifted anyway.

needles: 3.5mm

size: 25"deep x 75" wing span

start-finish: May 30 - June 4, 2021

mods: not really anything, except the edge is garter stitch and I made stripes with the CC color to use up most of the yarn

Love it! How cool to be ahead of the pack, knitting for such a great designer! You know this design is going to be one of the most popular ones on Ravelry.

I love the Flashdance color, very lovely and I like the shawl.

Recently I worked with the Madelinetosh Light and I loved the color (Toast), but was most impressed with the final fiber.

Fab - so pretty and a clever alternative to lace. I would definitely have a go at making this
