One more kit for this new creation by Mindy Ross.  Here is another kit for Fins!

The Design

Here is how Mindy describes Fins:

A wonderfully clever asymmetrical beaded (or not) design.

Long and narrow with ‘FINS’ created along the way, for unlimited wearable ways to adorn and accessorize. This unique delightful design is knit seamlessly as one piece, and adjustable for length.

Pattern is in SHARK NAME sections.

The Yarn and Colorways

Mindy wrote this pattern for 475-680/ 100g-150g/ yards of fingering weight yarn. (434-622m) though this yardage could vary depending on choice of needle size and yarn.

We are not offering the same yarn as Mindy used in her original piece.  What we have for this kit is shown in the inset photos on the top picture and again below that.  The other photos are of Mindy's original pieces as well as the shawl as knit by Monika (aka Mosil1949 on Ravelry) and used with their permission -- they are here so you can get an idea of the whole. 

The yarn in Luxe, a fingering weight yarn of 25% Tussah Silk, 75% Superwash Merino .  These sets are made up of six smaller skeinettes, each 100 yards, for a total of 600 yards of yarns with gradually changing colors. 

 Impressionist Sunrise is based upon Monet's famous painting of that name.   It starts with a wonderful grayed blue violet skein (or ends with that skein, whichever you choose) and gradually adds delicate peach, until the last (or first) skein shows the sunlight just peeking

The Beads

Bead count for smaller version is approximately 700.  Your kit will include a bit more than that, in the size 6/0 beads.  

There are lots of ways to go with bead colors.  I tend to personally like beads that pick up one of the colors of the yarns and play with that; you might prefer a stronger contrast color.  If you have a preference, let me know.  Otherwise I will choose for you. 

The Pattern

Again, we just wanted to mention that the pattern is written out only, no charts.

I know some knitters prefer to get the pattern directly from Mindy via her Ravelry web page. This will give you a copy in your Ravelry library. In this case, set the drop-down menu above to "No Pattern Needed." This will also ensure that you receive any updates automatically. 

Plus!  Mindy is offering a special on the purchase of her Teeth and Fins together.   You will see the details on her Ravelry web page.

If you would prefer a printed copy or a PDF via email, please select that option via the "Pattern" drop-down menu. The PDF file will be emailed right before your kit is shipped.over the horizon.
