WIP: Rainbow Hap

IMG_3472

The world is a stressful place these days. When things get tough, I take to knitting to help my thoughts run their course and to de-stress. I started this Rainbow Hap at the beginning of June when a friend of mine gifted me the remains of her stash (she had really good taste in yarn). After I sorted out all the partial balls and did a wee bit of untangling I realized I had quite a gorgeous rainbow of yarn.

The gray yarn in the center is a skein of BMFA STR in one of the Spirit colorways from my stash. The Rainbow Hap is based on Gudrun Johnston’s Hansel, a traditional Shetland-style shawl. I used every last inch of the gray yarn for the center square and am slowly working my way through the rainbow of yarn and ignoring the stripe sequences listed in the pattern. This is simple knitting at its finest: garter stitch with a little pattern to memorize, lovely yarn, and size US 8 needles.
