I just have to have something on my needles. So when I finished the You Are Enough Shawl, I immediately started the Merfolk Fade Shawl by Jennifer Owens. The Yarn is DK Merino Superwash from Cape May Fiber Co. and comes as a kit with a few goodies and the pattern. The pattern is also available on Ravelry.
My very small start. And no other stitch marker would do except for a sweet little mermaid! It was included in a bag order I placed with Firerweed Studio. The yarn huggers on my yarn cakes are also from Fireweed Studio. She has cute knitting accessories in her Etsy shop.
This is my first shawl using DK weight yarn. The yarn is soft and squishy. It has a bouncy feel and I like the way it glides through my fingers and over my needles.
The color I am currently using is called Nessie. It really reminds me of mermaid scales. All the beautiful greens with splashes of Pink, Blue, Purple and Aqua. The other two colors in the fade are Sea Swords and Mermaid Mane. I will talk more about those two colors when I get to them. For now I am enjoying the beautiful Nessie.
So far the pattern is well written and I am enjoying the knitting. I have added a few rows of the lace pattern and it looks so pretty. I am loving the way the splashes of color pop up on my needles in between the beautiful shades of green.
So that is what I am stitching this afternoon. What are you stitching on today? Drop me a comment and tell me all about it.

I don’t have any knitting on the go at the moment, so I’ll just back and enjoy watching your mermaid shawl grow ^^
Since it is DK yarn, I am hoping it will grow quickly 😉
That’s going to be a pretty shawl!
I am finishing a drum I stitched by Stacy Nash.
Thank you, Marilyn. I think so, too. Good luck with your stitching. Sounds like you will have a finish soon.
A very promising start, Ginny! Love the markers and yarn holders too.
It’s been a while since I knitted; I can’t wait for the weather to cool down a bit so I can get to it.
Thank you, Anita. The shawl is coming along wonderfully. It is a different shape than I have knitted before, so I am looking forward to seeing the end result. And I am looking forward to adding the 3rd color. I is full of pink 😉
