Windmill Shawl with Vivid Fiber Arts, Part 1

Hi everyone!

I'm running another yarn test for the super awesome Vivid Fiber Arts, this time it's a gorgeous bamboo/cotton blend in the "Sonrisa" colorway:


The pattern I'm using is by A La Sascha called, Windmill Shawl. (Also available through their Ravelry shop.) Here are some WIP pics:


Now a little further on, lol


This pattern is extremely easy while giving off a beautiful, more complicated look. This is a great pattern for beginning hookers who want to try out a shawl. :D

As for the yarn, it's another knock out of the park for me so far! Glides nicely through the hands without being slippery, feels good like a cotton yarn should. lol No sheen like VFA's previous Lux line but it's very soft and squishy. The gradient has been a gradual change and actually snuck up on me a couple of times like, oh snap, you look different now! lol Which is really the best part about working with this fabulous yarn.


I can't wait to share the finished shawl with you guys! You will LOVE how these colors blend and swirl together!

Have a great day!
