This shawlette is a great example of the magic that can happen when you pair the right yarn wiht the right pattern. Frankly, this pattern would be great for any variegated yarn, but I think it did this great colorway so much justice. I loved watching how the colors changed through the feather and fan pattern as I knitted it up. The yarn and the pattern accentuated each other, really. The pattern was fun, interesting, easy and fast -- and now I'm completely addicted to shawls. I've recently added three shawls and a stole to my Ravelry queue, and I can't wait to dive in!
...except I should really focus on some winter and Christmas knitting first.
