The workshop was a lot of fun and I wish I had taken photos of the yarn dyeing process, but I was too busy enjoying myself to remember to take pictures.
We started out with about 440 yards of undyed merino wool in sock weight. I told myself that I was going to use browns and blues for my yarn, and stay away from my favorites, purples and greens. I wanted to create something different than what I usually buy.

Frisson: I love the simple geometry of this shawlette. This pattern is really what I had in mind when I thought about using my hand-colored yarn.
Hallayo: This scarf pattern has been in my queue for a while. I love this design, but really wanted to make more of a shawl than a scarf.
Sea Line Shawl: This is your basic feather-and-fan design, but I think it would be pretty with the colors in my yarn.
Margosha Shawlette: I'm leaning toward this pattern. It has the eyelets and open weave that I was looking for. I like the crescent shape of the design. And I like how the short-row edging creates a little ruffle.
Which one do you think I should make?
