Well wasn’t that an absolute nail biter?!!

Raisin and Heather Shadow squeaked in by .5% and just 8 votes! The Potpourri and Boudoir combo was so close in second place!

Regarding the Juno Alice yarn, as I mentioned last week, it is hand dyed by Asti and is therefore only available from a few places.

I bought mine at Loop, London and also from Fabstract online.

There are some limited colours available on the Juno Etsy store and Asti has kindly offered to custom dye orders for the KAL but said it will take a few weeks to fulfil custom orders.

The Velvet and Bittersweet colour ways are exclusive to Loop.

Thank you SO MUCH everyone for voting, this week and all along – it has been so much fun coming up with a question and seeing what everyone thinks each week! I am feeling quite sad the voting bit is over.

But no time to dwell on it, as I have some designing to do! I started playing around with some stitch patterns and seriously trying out some different ideas this week.

I have a concept, and it seems to be going in a little bit of a whimsical direction. I am also trying out a slightly different construction from anything I’ve done or seen so it will either be great or I will be doing some ripping back in the next few days.

Some, all, or maybe even none of these ideas might make it into the final shawl. Here is just a little sneak preview of where I’m at today.

Whatever direction it goes, I will make sure you will be able to make the shawl from two average 100g skeins of sock yarn (approx. 400 yards). So while I’m busy on this part, you can start to organise your yarn for the project. A few people commented that they prefer a single colour shawl and that is fine too.

As always I would be delighted to hear your thoughts in the comments, and to hear what yarn and colours you are choosing for the project.

  1. The yarn is absolutely delicious! I haven’t tried Juno yet … a trip to Loop is well overdue đŸ™‚

  2. Gorgeous combo, I’m glad it won out!!

  3. This has been so much fun already! Can’t wait to see what stitches you decide on, I like several of what you’ve got posted. I love the colors that won out, though they weren’t what I chose.
