A few months ago, when I was browsing yarns in the Periwinkle Sheep Etsy shop (just for fun, as we knitters do!), I fell in love with a delicate pale rose/peach yarn — the Rose Quartz colorway of Watercolors II. A lightbulb went on and I couldn't ignore it. The fingering weight merino was exquisite, just perfect for a new sample of my Wonderberry Shawl, which I'd designed in 2013. The yarn I'd originally used had been discontinued and I'd often thought I really should knit a new sample and update the pattern with a currently available yarn.
I told myself I didn't have time to revisit an older pattern, but I just couldn't get the Rose Quartz yarn out of my mind! So I ended up casting on a new sample of Wonderberry, working on it here and there between other projects. Along the way, I began to envision a new garter stitch and eyelets edging as well. It came out rather well I think — looking nice both before blocking (above) and even nicer after (below).
I'm getting ready to release the expanded pattern with instructions for three sizes and two edging options. There's just some photo editing and a few other odds and ends left to do. Plus, there will also be an Instagram giveaway! Karin of Periwinkle Sheep has generously donated the two skeins of this lovely Rose Quartz colorway. So keep an eye on my Instagram feed — that's where the giveaway will happen. It won't be long now!
