Oyster Bay on the Way

The Oyster Bay shawl pattern is written, set into my new layout, and sent off to test knitters. Now we wait while my wonderful testers work through the design to make sure there’s nothing bizarre happening. The pattern should be all set by mid May. However, since it is a cool weather design (being knit in a chunky merino/alpaca blend), I may hold it for release until the end of August. Within the time I’m working in more shawls. All named for towns with LIRR stations. #commuterlife

My current shawl WIP is “Stony Brook,” worked in Wool and the Gang’s Sugar Baby Alpaca. It features a garter stitch body and knit-on border.

The yarn is buttery. I love it, but truth be told, I like the Oyster Bay yarn better. (We Are Knitters The MeriPaca) Something about merino just gets my vote for comfort every time.
