Curious Collective 2014 DKAL: Week 2

Curious Collective 2014The Curious Collective Shawl Project is generously being sponsored by Juno Fibre Arts again this year.

I will be knitting the knitting the shawl in the exquisite Juno Alice sock (70% Baby Alpaca 20% Silk 10% Cashmere) and this week you get to decide on the colour combination for the sample.

Juno yarns are hand dyed by Asti Grafham in her studio in Devon and the colours are absolutely luminous. I have now used Juno Alice for Glitz at the Ritz, Curious Collective Shawl 2013 and Frangipani Shawl and it without a doubt my favourite yarn for knitting shawls.

Here are the colour combinations to choose from for this week’s poll. I’ve included larger pictures here and then smaller images in the poll itself.

These combinations have been carefully selected by Asti and I in collaboration.

The process basically went along the lines of Asti sending me a gorgeously edited selection of combinations to choose from and several days of me trying to narrow the selection down to five. Me, utterly unable to choose and Asti stepping in to help with the final decision!

So what is your favourite for the Curious Collective 2014 shawl?
