When I've knitted my first Spektrum shawl, as a kind of a "job requirement" I've made it out of DROPS yarns. I love it, and I hardly take it off (just as the girls in Barka, even they couldn't make me). The shawl was also very succesful, pictures of it made it to the Facebook page of DROPS itself. Still, even as I knit it the first time around I had a feeling it would really, really look good in a long changing rainbow colored yarn.
So when a Facebok friend asked if I would knit one for her, I jumped on the opportunity and convinced her, that if we get into shipping it halfway around the world, we might as well go into it full, and make it from handdyed, handsoun yarn.
The grey one is about 1100 meters of merino, slightly heathery.s here.
Pictures were shot by... does it still need to be said?
But I never tired of putting down his name: Christopher Laurent Deli.
This last one is my favorite.
