The beginning of a Nina Shawl
Hi, this is my first time to post to the KAL. I was curious to see if many others had knitted the Nina Shawl. I'm not seeing very many posts with the name Nina in it! lol But I've only checked a page or two so maybe there are more I'll find later. I fell in love with the color combo in the Nina and decided I HAD to make it. I just started Saturday so I don't have much completed yet. I did decide to do a seed stitch on each side with 10 stitches instead of 5. Anyway, this is the first picture I took on Sunday. Will post more as I progress........ I'd love to see other's color choices!
Well, my color combo is inspired by blossoming flowers and trees--muted magenta, light green, coconut brown and maybe a light pink, using Classic Elite Premiere cotton/tencel yarn.
i'm still waiting to get some of the yarn for it but i cast on and started with the pinky-red colored yarn first...i'll post a picture as soon as i can as well!
