Another outfit based on one item, and this time it’s the hand-knit shawl! I bought the yarn last October at NY Sheep and Wool festival in Rhinebeck, worked on the Trinity Shawlette last spring, and finally blocked the piece a couple weeks ago.
Sadly, this shirt has developed a small stain near the neckline; it’s a tiny discoloration that’s probably only noticed by me, but still. I can get away with a few more wears by adding scarves or shawls to the outfit. I added the green cami, peeking out of the hemline, to bring the colors together.
Here’s a close up of the shawl. It’s not a full-size shawl (more of a shawlette, as noted in the pattern’s title) and it’s just big enough to wrap around my neck. I love the colors, which pulled me over to it at Rhinebeck in the first place. I had no idea what I was going to knit with it at that time, but knew I needed to bring it home with me.
I topped it all off with the earrings from my mother. They do seem to go with everything!
I must have been wearing my black boots with this outfit, because I can’t figure out why I wouldn’t have taken any shoe photos that day.
