Midnight's moonlight shawl

There has been knitting and it isn't socks and it isn't hats.
May I present to you the beginning of Midnight's moonlight shawl.
Yarn is a mix of fleece artist mo and an unnamed glittery cone I've got. Don't they look gorgeous together? This shawl is going to be (hopefully) very long and very wide. The kind you wrap round yourself on moonlit nights.


I love how it is knitting up together.
just a hint of glitter when it moves, just like moonlight glistening through the trees.
mohair never photographs easily and the glitter doesn't show in the other ball, but still a great pairing.

Gorgeous colours Amber...am also rather impressed with your upright swift (I have an antique version), did mr Mog make it?

That is so beautiful. Will look stunning on moonlit rambles with the shiny bits.
