Tulipanes " Pink Much?"






“Tulipanes” by Herbert Niebling using handspun yarn made from 50/50 silk/merino in colorway “Sugar”from “A Verb For Keeping Warm” plied with Miss Babs “Scarlet Ibis” Merino/Bamboo/Tussah Silk. I used US 0 needles and it ended up with a 54” diameter shawl. The Miss Babs fiber turned out a bit too bright for my taste but what the heck, it's a learning opportunity :-)

It's it's unbelievable, Jane! Stunning! I don't think it's too bright!!

Dear Susan,

Thank you so much! It actually is an even brighter pink if you can believe it. My pictures of the dry shawl in natural light will show you just how darned pink it really is :-)

Holly said...

Stunning! Simply stunning.

So beautiful! You did a wonderful job and handspun to boot! Well done!

Another sunning lace piece.

Your execution of the pattern can nobilitate even the most barbie-like shade of pink. Heck, even unicorn -riding,tripping on acid kind of "barbiepink"!
Just lovely:)

Jane said...

Dear Holly,

Thank you! I'd really like to do something that is not pink next though :-)

Jane said...

Dear Cookie,

Thank you! The fact that I had spun the yarn was the main reason I decided to finish it even though it ended up much more vivid a pink than I had originally planned. You will see it when I post the dry shawl next :-)

Jane said...

Dear Sana,

Thank you! I have a huge list of Niebling lace I'd like to get to, not to mention other forms of lace :-)

Jane said...

Dear Ola,

If only the shawl was really small enough for Barbie to wear! It's very close to being Pepto Bismol Pink in the center so I don't know if I will ever have the nerve to wear it in public :-)
