My Derecho!

Remember how I frogged my Color Affection and then started Derecho? And kept working on it?

Now it’s done… and I couldn’t be happier! It’s beautiful!

Derecho Shawl by Laura Aylor

The lime green yarn from Candy Skein really makes the whole project pop, don’t you think?

I had such a blast knitting this… and the best part is that it’s totally wearable. You can even still see the design when I’m wearing it! Love that.

I hope you have an awesome and craft-filled weekend!

My mom and step-father are visiting this weekend, so I’m going to be getting into some semi-crafty house updating projects!

    It’s beautiful! Is there a crochet version? Love the design, but I do not knit.

    • I don’t know of a crochet version for this one…

  2. Ellie SAYS...

    I LOVE it!!! I don’t knit and would LOVE to see a crochet pattern for this, it’s awesome.

  3. ZoeOB SAYS...

    You just HAD to add to my list of “must” projects, didn’t you, Stacey? Gorgeous!I love your color choices and it looks wonderful on you. Well done!

  4. Love it! Also, the State Fair starts this weekend. Maybe you can whisk your mom and step dad there?

    • I thought the fair started Thursday?
      The parents are headed out of town today… but man, they were super-productive! The deck has basically been replaced!

  6. june SAYS...

    that is so pretty – wish I had the patience to do that!

    • Thank you 🙂
      You could totally do it… I picked it up and worked on it when I had some spare time!

  7. Looks great. And with your outfit too.

  8. That is so beautiful Stacey. What a lovely job you have done on it. So bright. It reminds me a little bit of the log cabin I have just finished but in a triangle instead of a square. Well done. 🙂

    • Thank you! I am very pleased with this one!

  9. Ellisen SAYS...

    Hello Stacey. I belong to a Prayer Shauwl group and I would really
    Love this knitting pattern. Please let me know where to find it.
    As we all in the group use leftover yarn to knit Shauwls, and
    This Pattern will come in very handy.

    • This is a great pattern for using up leftovers! You can find the pattern, here. It’s called ‘Derecho’ by Laura Aylor.

    • Thank you, Gale! I’m quite proud of the photos… I’ve been training Tim to take okay pictures 🙂
