Colorado Spice Market!

Hello friends! Here is your FO for a mid-week pep-up! My On the Spice Market shawl made from beautiful colorado wool!

I made this version of the popular On the Spice Market shawl out of Jennifer Guyer’s beautiful Pace and Presence yarn. It’s her third yarn line designed from wool that is grown, sheared, sorted, milled, and dyed in the western US–largely in Colorado. It’s a soulful stash kind of yarn that makes you think of place and the sheepy friends who give us their warm wool each year! The yarn is 2-ply and can be purchased in 300yd skeins (neutrals) and 100yd skeins (colors) and it’s GREAT for color work!! All of the colors are overdyed and have a beautifully heathered appearance. I loved working with the yarn and after its washed it blooms beautifully! Completely colorfast and the reds, purples, and greens are some of my favorite–but Jennifer has so many colors to choose from!

My only modification here is that the center has 3 repeats instead of 4; this allowed me to make the shawl with 1 x natural skein and 6 x different colors. My Ravelry project page can be found here.

And now . . . this baby is off in the post to its forever home . . . I hope the recipient is happily surprised 🙂
