Meet Mrytle

This is Mrytle.

I acquired her this past month from the lys I have been working at for the past 2 years.  The owner had decided to retire after 16 years in the business and the liquidation sale started August 1.  I literally dropped the kid off at the airport that Wednesday and headed for work and am just now coming up for air.

Anyhow, Mrytle will be my new model to show off my knitting.  She will, however, not be modeling socks or gloves for obvious reasons.

And for her first showing I present Penumbra by Sivia Harding.  Sivia is a known for her exceptional designs using lace and beads.

Penumbra is the first of six shawls from the Mezzaluna Club, Sivia's first subscription club that along with an exclusive pattern includes yarn from top yarn dyers and complimenting beads.
The yarn for this shawl is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Marine Silk fingering in the colorway H2o yeah.

The next shipment won't be until November which gives me time to catch up on some of my other knitting.


  1. Glad Myrtle went to a good home! Love the shawl pretty pattern and certainly shows well in the colour you have chosen. Enjoying retirement now I hope

  2. Hi Myrtle, so that's where you ended up. Lucky you: new outfits every week.
    I hope you looooooooove purple!

    1. Myrtle is going to be in PURPLE heaven.
