Meet Me At Midnight Test

The Meet Me At Midnight shawl pattern by Cheryl Faust was my first time test knitting for her, and actually my first time knitting any of her patterns! It's interesting to patterns from different designers back to back, because they all have their unique way of writing a pattern! While the finished product might be of similar construction than some other designer's shawl, for example, the way the pattern is constructed may be quite different.

The pattern is written for DK weight yarn, but because at the time of casting on in particular I was low on options in that weight range, I used a mixture of DK and sport weight yarns. The yellow-green is Tibetan DK by Martin's Lab, and it's absolutely heavenly! It's soft, shiny and drapy, my first time working with this yarn that I bought from their booth at a Finnish craft fair (Martin is the husband of the Polish designer Justyna Lorkowska). The speckled beige is La Bien Aimée Merino Sport and the dark brown is Wollmeise Blend. I think it worked out quite well that the mosaic sections are knit with slightly thinner yarns!
