Multnomah

Okay, okay, so you're tired of reading about Ohio - I get it!!

I wanted to wait 'til I got some "action" shots of Multnomah, but no one wanted to volunteer to pose for me. All you're gonna get is the blocking shots on one of the guest room beds, along with some of my old, ratty beach towels.

The yarn is some Corriedale X roving I bought from Cooper Moose, which I hate to admit was a bit overspun, so it's not super soft. That would be my fault, for those of you who aren't familiar with the process. I then dyed the resulting yarn a beautiful aqua color, which I didn't feel was conducive to the shawl, so I overdyed. The second time I chose an emerald green with some black to try to darken it up. I like the handspun look of it. It's not perfectly spun, and the imperfections just add to its charm, right?

Multnomah is lovely. Is it named after the falls in Oregon?

Of course it ALL adds to the charm.

Not many things in life are perfect but they can be perfectly beautiful. I love the emerald green.
