Some Wool Over The Rainbow

I love rainbows. All those colors shining in a perfect shape over the sky. They amazes me every time I see them. I can try to knit some of the magic into my stitches - but it will not work.

But again, there are some yarns that promise you a rainbow as you knit. This is one of them.

The beginning of the shawl.
This shawl is so soft and warm. The shawl is knitted from a german pattern which I manage to translate into norwegian. It´s all one knit (knitted from the back loop) and one purl. Simple as that.

It´s knitted on two sizes of needles - that´s what gives the special stitches.

I used interchangeable neddles with one 3.5mm needle on the one end, and one 9mm needle on the other end of the cable.

Sounds really strange to knit with, but after a couple of rows you won´t notice.

For this project I used the yarn Crystal palace Mini mochi. What I didn´t think about was: As the shawl got wider the rainbow became more like stripes. But that´s fine - it´s so lovely to wear. And the colors are lovely.

So here is my shawl, my cat and my own personal rainbow. And as Rachel Houston said:

When you reduce life to black and white, you never see rainbows
