WIP Wednesday: Colonnade

This week's work in progress is the lovely Colonnade Shawl. This was a pattern I stumbled upon whilst scouring Ravelry for reasons to buy some really quite squishy Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky.

Having gotten well into Chart B on my Haruni, I figured another new project would be needed for this years Transformers holiday (am I ever home at the moment?) and so I took yarn and needles for two projects - or at least I thought I did. On discovery that I in fact had every interchangeable end except the ones required to start an aligator bag, my choice was made, and I cast on for my Colonnade.

The yarn I'm using is the aforementioned Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky, in a dark green solid and a complementary paint version with greens and purples. Now I've put in a stitch marker before the final two wrong-side stitches this is going quite well (guess who kept cocking up the garter edge).

Time to get a knitting groove on and finish this off (and everything else on the 'nearly finished' pile...


  1. Wow, what beautiful yarn! It was perfect for the project.

  2. Super yarn colours!

    My WIP this week is a Stephen West too! Just cast on this afternoon and going well. (I'm doing his Herbivore.)
