I have been thinking about knitting the Dreambird for a while now. This prompted me to start looking up finished Dreambirds on ravelry. Wow. This is an amazing shawl. So I downloaded the pattern and looked it over. Seemed like something I could handle. Then I had to figure out my yarn colorways.
One that really stood out to me while looking at all the beautiful examples on ravelry was justquiltin’s version. I loved the longer color repeats of the feathers, and the grey/tan of the background. I decided to use the same yarn justquiltin used for the feathers, just in a different colorway. I chose Crystal Palace Mini Mochi in Autumn Rainbow. For the background I went with a light tan/grey called Buckingham Fountain in Shepard Sock by Lorna’s Laces.
My colorblind husband assisted in choosing the colors. I love earthy, autumn colors and I want the feathers to stand out against the background. I also like how the grayish background color is slightly tonal. Im excited for it to arrive so I can cast on!
