Yarn Along 2017.2

Joining Ginny today for this week's Yarn Along.

My Knusa shawl is growing by leaps and bounds. With all the chilly weather we've been having, I cannot wait to finish it so I can wrap up in it!

Can you see the subtle stripes in my shawl?  That is because I all ready had one skein of this yarn in my stash, and decided to order more so that I had enough for this project.  Being hand-dyed and of different dye lots, there is a slight color difference between the new yarn and the stash yarn.  Rather than try to 'hide' the stash yarn by only using a little of it here and there throughout the shawl, I am using it to create random stripes.  The plan is to (hopefully) use it all up making stripes in the body of the shawl before I get to the lace edging.  Depending on the lighting, the stripes are barely there or make a nice monochromatic accent.
