three shawls

One of the truly disappointing things about the cancellation of this year's DFW Fiber Fest was no one got to see three absolutely beautiful shawls.

I usually try to have a few new samples in my booth each year (I'm better at this some years more than others...) especially showcasing new or new-ish colorways.

And boy, was I set for this year! Kay Meadors, of Natural State Knits, kindly offered to supply a couple of shawls for me. She picked out a few colors and before I could even blink, it seemed, she was done! 

I opened the box and there were three shawls! Three beautiful shawls:

Shawl #1 is Laurel Lace in Dried Lavender. The pattern is called the Fanfare Lace Shawl by Kay.  It's crocheted with beautiful beading added to the hem. It's so soft and light!

Shawl #2 is Cottage Sock in Tartlette. The pattern is the Camhanaich Shawlette. It's also crocheted with beads along the border. Soft and squooshy, I think this will make a perfect "scarf". Camhanaich is a Scottish word meaning "early morning light"...how lovely is that?

Shawl #3 is MCS Fingering in Blackbird. The pattern is the Solasta Shawl and it's just stunning. I'm telling ya...photos cannot do this shawl justice. It's just gorgeous and the drape of it with the beads is fantastic. It just feels good around your shoulders. And look at the little beads...they're square. I love them! If you look closely, you can probably see where I drooled all over it:)
