I recently whipped this up for a friend who is going through a rough time. I had hoped the bright colors, reminiscent of the sunrise, might help brighten a dark time, and help her know that a new day is always on the horizon. The pattern is the Calypso Shawl, and the yarn is Darn Good Yarn’s Ombre Recycled Silk in Orange, Blue, and Purple. The yarn is made from silk waste, that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
SO colorful! I love it!
I love the tonal colors.
This is so gorgeous, the cheerful colors would brighten up any gray day.
This is so pretty and happy!
What a thoughtful gift! So bright and cheerful…love the edging.
I LOVE THIS! Blue and orange is my all time favorite color combo!
This is the most gorgeous project, so bright and cheerful and just WOW!
Luscious colours! so happy
Thanks Friends! I loved working on this one, because the silk yarn felt so nice on my hands as I worked. Blocking was a bit of a project, since I had to pin out each of those little fringe-bits, but I’m so pleased with how it came out.
That looks great, and my first thought was sunrise on the sea, so the theme was really spot on. Hopefully your friend will feel better soon, rough times suck so much.
