FO: Haematoxylum

 


Haematoxylum, according to Wikipedia, is a kind of tree that is part of the legume family. In this case, it is the pattern name by Ysolda Teague reflects the fact that this shawl design incorporates some subtle tree designs into it.

The pattern was part of the Ysolda 2016 club, the final shipment, and it has been sitting around my apartment for the past few months. It was a fun and simple knit – mostly garter and stockinette stitch, with a little lace on one edge.

The yarn is luscious – a lovely dusty-pink-rose in the Briar Rose colorway in Sock by Shilasdair. This is a lovely independent dyer on the Isle of Skye – truly a lovely, slightly crunchy but not scratchy yarn.
