Hazeline

Pattern: Hazeline by Anne Hanson for the September installation of the Fall in Full Colour Club.

Made for: me

Size: small

Yarn: Shalimar Yarns Breathless in “Hazel Leaf” (colourway exclusive to club)

Needles: 2.75 and 3mm circulars

Gauge: pretty close to recommended if not spot on

Started: Sept 17/11        Finished: Sept 28/11 (knitting complete on Sept 23)

The yarn chosen for this month’s club instalment was absolutely lovely. I very much enjoyed handling it as it felt so soft in my hands as I worked with it. The colourway was a bit unusual but still very pretty in the skein and even prettier when knit up. The yellow does pool a bit but somehow, at least with this pattern, it is not unattractive at all.

I have been wearing it quite a bit since the yarn is absolutely lovely and soft so it’s welcome close to the neck and it is quite a sturdy shawl so I don’t really have to worry about it snagging too much. Sadly though there never seems to be a camera around when I am wearing it so an effort had to be made for to get photos. I took it along on a hike and made sure to shoot some pictures!

I am really enjoying the club so far and now have two great accessories. Can’t wait to see what this month will bring!
