melted mirage

Friday, August 23, 2019

While in Barcelona in the Spring we happily stumbled upon a cute little yarn shop.  (I wrote about it here.)  Inside, the walls were filled with colorful skeins of yarn and shop samples.  Simply stunning.  As I do in all yarn shops I visit,while in another country, I asked if they had any local yarn.  I was thrilled to see an entire wall filled with all things local.  
I'm not one for purchasing yarn without a pattern.  (Unless it is a skein of worsted that I know I can use to make a pair of Toast. ) So, I checked the sample wall in the shop and fell in love with her version of the Melted Mirage.  I tried on the drapey shawl and just loved the way it felt.  Lightweight yet warm. It just so happened that the owner knit it out of this same yarn.  
I tried all sorts of color combinations but in the end settled on these two beauties.  Just two colors and the brioche stitch.  This time I am inserting a lifeline every so often.  Cause I haven't come close to mastering how to repair brioche mistakes!

Happy weekend, friends!
