Dam(n)son!

That Ysolda Teague is a genius. And she is young too so we can expect so much more from her in the years to come.

I have enjoyed every single project I have knitted so far from her designs, which include Liesl, Scroll Lace Scarf and this latest one, Damson.

I have finished two of these shawls in about a month. The first one was this pink thing. It’s not my colour but certainly belonged to my fair-skinned mother-in-law. This is her Christmas present from me.
Project: Raspberry Damson

And since I wanted a Damson of my own, I knitted a second one from Lizard Toes’s Isobel yarn base. The colourway is Happy and the yarn is an MCN base. Fan-freaking-tastic yarn if you ask me! Go on to Lizard Toes’s shop right now and buy some.
