On the pattern side, this is pretty straightfoward. Once upon a time (two years ago), I knitted a shawlette from a pattern called Ardent. That was my first Janina Kallio project, I think. And since I’ve enjoyed wearing the shawlette as well as knitting it, I eventually decided to make another one.
On the yarn end, well, last November, Suncat and I went to Vogue Knitting Live. One vendor there was Melting Pot Fibers. I admit, I might’ve not looked all that closely at their wares on my own, but Suncat was interested in their roving. While she investigated it, I looked through the yarn on display and found a skein of fingering weight yarn in a glorious shade of rose.
So…lovely pattern + lovely yarn = another Ardent shawlette. My only frustration is that even though I had 20 yards more of this yarn than the pattern called for, again, I ran out before the end. (And again, not noticeable when wearing it.)
