Green Line to Ashland

My love affair with triangle shawl continues. I've made more than I care to count. The funny thing about them is that I like to give them away. I'm not sure what's happening with that. For the longest time, the only hand knit I would give away was a baby gift. Something has changed.

My love affair with stripes continues as well. This beauty by Kate Kaplan hits on all cylinders. It's called The Green Line to Ashland.

This is made from Solemate. The green stripes (green lines) are 711 Grant Park and the background is 1211 The "L". That's a clever bit of naming.

I'm also loving the fringe. It's not too heavy and adds a nice bit of movement to the shawl.

Color possibilities here are endless. The complementary colors Kate used are pretty classic but I've been feeling blues and greens together lately too.
