Stitching Status: Finding My Fade

I got bit by the bug, the art of peer pressure, I wanted to be one of the cool kids…I’m making a Find Your Fade shawl.
Finding my fade
I know, I am not typically a shawl knitter. I do not enjoy knitting things on a needle smaller than a 5 but this shawl has got me. Mind you I’m finishing a test knit sweater and working on things for others but the pattern is easy to memorize so when I need a break or something mindless I’ve been pulling out my fade.
Finding my fade
I think once I started seeing the #FindYourFadeShawl popping up on Instagram and all the gorgeous color combos I knew I had to jump in. The pattern has gauge listed with size 4’s but I actually got my gauge on a size 6 needle, so it doesn’t make it so bad. It’s a super soothing knit.
Finding my fade
I added my third of seven colors during the finale of How to Get Away with Murder last night and I’m so excited to add the next color. Building the fade of color is what makes it such a fun knit. You want to get to your next color. So far I’ve added Madelinetosh in Edison Bulb, Hedgehog Fibres in Genie (middle) and Fly (bottom). My next color is a multicolored grey and then I get into blues and deep pinks!! This may take me a bit of time just because it’s not my main project but it sure does make me excited to work on. So is anyone else finding their fade?! Share your project pages in the comments if you are, I want to see!

  1. Love your colour choices. I’ve got to resist the urge to start one, but it’s definitely on my radar. Have you seen her latest pattern, Rose Gold? Another great shawl.
