Bit Of A Start

I bought this yarn to be a Melon Shawl, but the yarn wanted to be a Shoulder Shawl in Syrian Pattern.

Do I know why? No. But I do know I don't like Crystal Palace Kid Merino quite as well as Kidsilk Haze, though it does appear to be a good, less costly, substitute, and it comes in some interesting colors. It just doesn't have quite the sheen and softness of Kidsilk Haze.

I have no clue what I'm going to do with this shawl when I'm done. I have two triangle shawls already that I don't get to wear often enough.

It looks beautiful! I think the syrian shawl pattern will show the multi-colors of your yarn better than the melon shawl. I hope you find a place and time to wear all your shawls!

The yarn looks wonderful in that pattern. What fabulous colors!

Great colours. I know what you mean about all the shawls . I too wonder if I will ever wear them all but I do so enjoy making them

The missing ingredient in the CP yarn is of course the silk - that's what makes the ksh so beautiful to work with.
However, your cp colour is very beautiful and the scarf looks lovely so far.
And the price sure is better.
