Melanie Berg recently visited Dublin and I was lucky enough to join her shawl workshops. A really inspiring designer who also gives a great class.
In advance of the trip to Edinburgh I was trying to do some stash reduction and the results were this lovely version of Spice Market and a summer version of Drachenfels.
My spice market was closer to a fruit market but still a lovely result. This is a link to Melanies pattern page http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/on-the-spice-market.
The Summer Drachenfels turned out quite pretty but is missing all the drama of contrasting dark colours – will have to revisit. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/drachenfels
Did I achieve the desired stash reduction – absolutely not – discovered I had lots more than I thought so lots more shawls to come.
