Traveling woman", I knew I had to knit it up for her. I found the perfect yarn at The Loopy Ewe, I bought a skein of Dream in Color Starry in the Amethyst Ink colourway, it is purple and black. I used needles 4 mm, US 6, and I knit the fingering version in medium. Here's my Ravelry project page, for anyone interested.
When I had two rows left, I realized that I wouldn't have enough yarn to finish it. Luckily, I have a "little" yarn stashed, so I found something that matched, and knit the last two rows in Wollmeise 100% Merino superwash in Schwarz.
This wil be her Christmas gift, so this post will go up automatically on Christmas Eve. The pictures show the whole shawl, and a closeup of the colours. As always, you can click the pictures to make them bigger.
