I knew this lovely silk, mohair, and wool blend would be perfect for a shawl and I decided on hexagons to break up the color runs. I wanted at least two color runs to appear in each hexagon and with a little experimentation found that about a 7 inch hexagon would work out just fine.
I linked half and whole hexagons together to create a somewhat triangular shape. To compliment the color pooling in the hexagons, I added a long garter stitch border to blends all the colors together for a finished look. I am so happy with the result.
I worked on this one a lot in Colorado where the nature's beauty is evident no matter which way you turn. Throughout the city of Steamboat Springs you will find creeks and streams and, of course, the Yampa River. They are all gorgeous tumbling displays 'of natural unevenness and asymmetrical pattern and complex color'. I couldn't resist naming this one Creekside.
PS: If you are ever in Steamboat don't miss this little gem. Try the BAT (bacon, avocado and tomato) Benedict with a side of the cheesy chile grits. Yummy!
