Cruisin’ Roses

By

This past weekend I cast off another ‘I’d Rather Be Cruising’ shawl made in my ‘Rose’ ombré colour way. I love how the colour turned out!

I had yarn left over – and one thing about ombré yarns is that you want to use up as much as you can, to get the full expression of the gradient. Because of this I decided to add on a ruffle border. With debatable results.

That border *may* end up getting frogged later, but right now I don’t feel inclined 😉 Too eager to move on to other projects!

It’s been so cold in Toronto (snowed yesterday, seriously!) that I’m actually getting a chance to wear this beauty. I guess that’s the upside to our lousy spring!

I love how the colours of my original inspiration rose blend in with the final piece. Ravelry project page here.
