buttery lemon pineapples

So, yeah, I’m really loving the Swallowtail shawl in zitronengelb Tausenschön yarn. The color isn’t quite solid but ever so slightly variegated — lovely hand-dyed goodness — which makes the lemony color slightly less vibrant and a bit more subtle. Or something. The pattern is zipping along, the needles [US8] and yarn [sock weight] are producing a nice squishy fabric, and I’m in lurv. Which is how you’re supposed to feel when knitting up a wedding gift shawl, right?

  1. What a lovely lovely color! The Swallowtail Shawl is so much fun to knit – I’m sure it will make a fabulous gift as well.

    It makes me want pineapple.

  2. You’re supposed to feel in lurv with everything you knit! 😛 That color looks good enough to eat. I am crazing something zitronen-y now. Too bad I gave away my lemon-poppy muffins…

  3. That is gorgeous! Wow, I have got to get some of that yarn. We’re coming to Munich in September, so perhaps some German yarn shopping is in order! It’s a great pattern too, so you’ll finish it in no time. Seri0usly lovely, my dear!

  4. This is so pretty and lemony. It looks squishy too, yum! I love that quality almost more than after something is blocked. 🙂
