Tami's Amis WIP Wednesday

I'm currently knitting this lace shawl from Huckleberry Knits BFL lace in the colorway Colleen. I love this yarn - it's soft and just the most vibrant tonal shades of green, much better in person than this not-so-great photo. The shawl is my dissertation for Nerd Wars Tournament 5. It's going to be similar to this worsted weight one I knit from Brown Sheep Naturespun last winter:

I'd hoped to make a bigger shawl then, but ran out of yarn. I was sure I had a second skein of the Nature Spun, but I didn't. Both were inspired by this rug I bought in Tunisia while visiting my brother who was living there.

I just love the geometric designs and hope they make as lovely a shawl as they do a rug.


  1. Your green shawl is looking good. I love your inspiration for your design. I think it's great how you incorporated it into your wrap. Nicely done!
