I am thrilled to show off the first finished project from my Spring Flingy Thingy: it's the tester Summer Leaf version of my Autumn Leaf Shawl. I am absolutely thrilled with how this version turned out.
Initially, I used two different fiber types from deep stash, so there's 1 1/2 skeins gone from stash.
Secondly, don't you love how these two colorways worked together? The main colorway, weeping willow green from Huckleberry Knits is all about summer, and the Wollmeise green (which I currently cannot locate on the Wollmeise site) has an almost camo quality to it. Together, this is a summer leaf come to life in a shawl.
Additionally, I made this version larger than my original sample, and this larger size blocked really well.
All in all, a really wonderful finished project, and I finally get on the finished project board in my own a-long. Geez. I was hoping to have my second finished project done today, but it didn't happen. Next week, after the holiday.

And I expect my weekend will include lots of great food and fiber. Happy Memorial Day!
