Daybreak Shawl number one

I really do love stripes. And shawls. So a stripy shawl is as good as it gets! And Colinette Jitterbug turned out to be a perfect yarn for this. I think it doesn't wear well in socks, but is so very soft to skin. Perfect for shawls!

Raidat ovat ihania, ja isot huivit. Eli parasta mitä voi kuvitella on raidallinen huivi. Ja Colinette Jitterbug oli täydellinen lanka tähän tarkoitukseen. Se ei oikein vakuuta minua sukkalankana, koska se nuhjaantuu ennätysnopeasti, mutta on niin kovin pehmeää ihoa vasten. Eli täydellistä huivilankaa!

I'm very happy with how it turned out! Lovely pattern, even if it took longer to knit than I imagined at first!

Olen oikein tyytyväinen tähän huiviin! Ihana malli, vaikka neulomiseen menikin enemmän aikaa kun aluksi kuvittelin!

Sometime it's a bit complicated to take photos of oneself!

Välillä menee huiskimiseksi kun itse ottaa itsestään kuvia!

It's BEAUTIFUL! I love the simplicity of it. I'm not a shawl person, but I would knit this! Perhaps it's your great color combinations, too. :)

Love the shawl - great combo of colorways.
I've used Jitterbug for gloves - they wear so well and don't pill - and keep my hands and fingers very warm :)
