Luna in blue started



Nothing exciting to report. I've started Luna in blue, still working through the top part. I'm not even sure I want this shawl in blue. I started it in blue before I received my latest Elann order, now I'm eyeing some of that red Ruby HW for the shawl. We'll see...

Looks good so far! I like your idea about making it in the Ruby color.
Do you think that pattern would take to Caron Simply Soft? I have a few skeins of it in Autumn Red, a color I really like, just don't want to go through a lot of effort if the pattern only looks good after it is blocked.

What is the blue material you are using? If it's a cotton/blend you could do one in both colours:-)

One for spring/summer and one for fall/winter!

Simply Soft is 100% acrylic (If I remember correctly) and I don't think Acrylics block well? Lace shawls are designed for a GOOD blocking..... which usually mean a more natural fibre is needed. You could try though. It might look fine without blocking and you should be able to tell after the first repeat or so.
