The Queen in Teal

Her majesty's here - finished and ready. It came out huge: 200x100 cm, but it weighs only 64 grams. Very light, soft and apparently non-scratchy (wasn't supposed to be anyway, but some people are extremely sensitive to some yarns; this was tested today by an objective tester, and proclaimed "very nice"). I'm happy with the result, though I still can't get the color right.

The yarn is a blend of kid mohair and polyamide. I used my own pattern Queen of the Forest, it's the large leaves version. (The pattern is available via Ravelry or at my other Etsy store - KnitInstructor.)



Here's the official color (sample from the yarn color card):


And the shawl itself is available for sale here: The Queen in Teal @Etsy

There are also other colors available: green (small leaves) and yellow/mustard (big leaves).

Thanks for dropping by!:) If you have any comments or suggestions I'll be happy to hear from you.

And come back soon - I'm working on something blue for Valentine's Day, so I'll be showing that (plus there'll be another version of zig-zag!)
