A new pattern now available from Ravelry and my website:

A luxurious crescent shawl inspired by the opulence of ancient Egyptian jewelry.
The color scheme of gold and precious stones is echoed in dibadu’s handpainted 100% silk yarn, Seda Encantada.
The yarn is held double; each color comes in two 50g skeins of slightly different colorways, adding depth and richness when held together.
Knit with three colors: 094 red, 116 yellow and 124 blue. The yarn is available from dibadu.de

I love this project of Bloomsbury Swirl (below) by Liz Baltesz with colour combinations inspired by London’s Autumn berries and skies.
The yarn is all hand dyed by Liz using various plants including madder, dahlia, marigold, tansy, goldenrod and weld for the flower motifs and indigo for the backgrounds and short rows.
Liz teaches natural dyeing and colour work knitting at wild and woolly in Hackney if you’re interested in finding out more.
