FO: Golden Eye Shawl

Here she is! I finally managed to block my shawl and take some photos.



The shawl measures 96.5 cm square and the yarn is The Knittery 2ply merino in Lavender. Sadly The Knittery no longer exists. I used 3.5 mm circular needles. And Mary I still have 20gm left. I might have been able to squeeze another repeat out but then again I might just have run short!



This shawl is based on the first square in the Summer Squares project. For those of you interested you can still sign up because it will be running for another 8 weeks.



I really liked the beads I used. I love the colour variation as well as the way they change colour depending on the light. The beads are Japanese Miyuku seed beads in Metallic Dk Variegated Iris.



And here is the sixth square in the Summer Squares Project, the Viola. This is another square for my cotton blanket.
