Range Shawl // Tolt Yarn & Wool // Hinterland

brioche, knitting, new pattern, yarnAndrea Mowry2 Comments
Joyful knitting. When yarn and needle come together in a serendipitous moment, and your hands don’t even need to be told what to do. You just sit back and watch something beautiful spring from your needles, stitch by stitch, seemingly effortlessly.

That is how I feel about the Range shawl.  The yarn is Hinterland Range from Tolt Yarn and Wool. Made from 50% Rambouillet and 50% Alpaca, it is woolen spun, soft and strong and utterly perfect in the four beautiful, undyed natural shades of White, Honey, Maple and Truffle. Together they form the a stunning neutral gradient, that when combined with some clever knit texture, melt sweetly from one hue to the next.

I love when the fiber tells me what it wants to be. Designing this shawl really was pure joy. Everything just worked. As the vision popped into my head, it easily translated to my hands and I was able to savor every stitch. As it poured from myneedles, I dreamt of winter walks in the woods and quiet, fluffy snowflakes falling from the sky. Wrapped up warm, protected from the wet and the cold, with only the crunching of my boots as the soundtrack to my adventure.

I hope you delight in knitting this shawl as much as I have!
