My stash shawl is complete and ready for the upcoming fashion show/show and tell at Knit N Stitch next Saturday. It's going to be so much fun to see what everyone created with their magic yarn balls or coordinated stash collections since our workshop a month ago.
Instead of cutting, tying, and rolling my yarn into a magic ball. I opted to change yarns as I knitted the shawl. It was kind of like painting with yarn. Whenever I felt the shawl needed a little pink here, or a little fur or fluff there, I'd tie on a new yarn and knit along until I felt it needed another texture.
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It can be worn like a shawl and even over my head and wrapped around my neck but this is how I like it best, like a cowl...
It's warm, somewhat elegant, and will add a nice pop of texture and a little color to an outfit. On the first post about this project, someone commented that it would look great with jeans. I totally agree. And, that works perfectly because I'm a bluejeans kind of girl! I'm going to be on the lookout for the perfect top to go with it.
I received some suggestions for naming this shawl. I liked all of them but Serenpinkadee (thanks, Jomamma) inspired me to name it Serendipity. The definition of serendipity is, "...desirable discoveries by accident; good fortune; luck. Seems perfect for how a bunch of stash yarns came together into this surprising and beautiful result.
