I can finally share one of my more recent FOs, the Hecate Shawl by Kirsten Kapur of Through The Loops. I was extremely eager to knit this as a test knit for Kirsten, and sure wasn't dissappointed when I did my first read through of the pattern.
Kirsten choose a 2 color combination of yarn, Louet Gems 100% Merino Wool fingering weight in brown, and Art Yarns Ultrameino4 100% Luxury Merino Wool in blue. Both are gorgeous yarns that work great together both in color and in texture. Louet Gems has a nice twist to the yarn, and holds great stitch definition. Art Yarns Ultramerino4 is extremely soft and luxurious.
I had a great time knitting this pattern, truly enjoyed watching the shawl develop as I got closer to finishing.
