Knitting

Two recently finished items. Another Old Man of Storr shawl and a Pimpelliese scarf. I saw the yarn on sale and could not resist, it has all my favorite colors in it and it knits very well too. I guess the colorway has been discontinued since it was on sale. It is Yarn Bee Snowflake Wool Blend in Caliope. I changed the pattern for the Pimpelliese a little to make sure I would not run out of yarn. Instead of continuing with the increases until I used half of the yarn I knitted four pattern units without increasing in the middle of the scarf.
