We have a few in-stock kits ready to ship right away for Hazy Daze. Read on for more data!
About the design:
Here is how the amazing designer, Bev of Boo-Knits, describes it:
Remember those hazy, lazy, crazy days of summer? Who would want to forget them! This top-down, crescent shaped shawl is delicate, lacy and dripping with beads. The stocking stitch body leads into a profusion of romantic lace reminiscent of nodding flowers; bluebells, honeybells, fuchsias . . .
The beads whisper as the shawl moves and the overall effect is a shimmer of romantic mist – a hazy daze of a shawl!
In Cirrus, the new heavy lace weight 80/20 blend of merino/silk, each kit will have four skeins totaling at least 872 yards.
Kelly of The Unique Sheep developed a color circle which we have called Hazy Days or sometimes Hazy Daze, in honor of this shawl.. It includes all of the colors of the spectrum but softened up with a touch of gray.
If you look at the circle and try to think of it as a clock you can see what colors are included. Bev chose from 5:00 to 8:00 for her shawl and those are the photos you see here of the finished piece -- a beautiful delicacy of coolness.
The second colorway we have in stock right now is the 1:00 to 4:00. this is a vibrant gold into peach into pink with some violet too. A delicious combination of colors!
Note that the first skein of each set is a larger 33 gram skein; the other three will be 25 grams.
The shawl uses about 900 size 5/0 Triangles. (That's a lot of beads!)
Because the colors are so gentle, I thought it best that the beads mirror this. As examples, for the 5:00 to 8:00 set I sent Bev Peony Pink Lined Crystal 5/0 Triangles.
For these particular 5:00 to 8:00 kits I have a slightly richer Smoky Amethyst AB which also looks great with these colors.
And we put aside some Apricot Lined Crystal triangles for the 1:00 to 4:00 sets -- a golden apricot which blends beautifully.
These beads reflect the colors in the yarn and capture the light while staying somewhat subtle.
I know some knitters prefer to get the pattern directly from Bev via her Ravelry web page.
If you would prefer a printed copy or a PDF sent by us via email, please contact me directly and I will work it out with you.
A real beauty here!
