Today's Three on Thursday is a showcase (Showcase?? That sounds so fancy!) of three shawls I've finished recently. And please excuse the lighting in the photos. We've got weird, pre-hurricane light happening and my camera is not appreciating it.
|Reyna knit from Hawthorne, The Pearl|
First, Reyna. Okay, so maybe Reyna isn't exactly a "recent" finish, but still... Here she is, finished and no longer spread out on the blocking mats. This one just may be my absolute favorite thing I've ever knit. I can see myself wearing this almost every day. It's light and airy yet surprisingly warm and I'm head over heels in love with the casual blues and taupe color mix. Green is normally my go-to color but this Reyna is the new love of my life.
|Hitchhiker knit from Sublime Eden|
And an even less 'recent' finish.... Another Hitchhiker. This one was knit with Sublime, a wool/cotton mix that I picked up at my LYS, Center of the Yarniverse. I usually dislike knitting with cotton but I had no problems with this yarn and I wouldn't hesitate to knit something else with it.
|Out of Winter knit with Sock Lab Stroll|
And, Out of Winter. This shawl was knit with Knit Picks' Sock Lab speckled Stroll which is apparently completely sold out now. It was lovely to knit with and I really wish I'd bought every color set they offered.
I do have one question about the yarn though. Is the top of the shawl more speckled because it's made up of shorter rows or was one end of the skein much more speckled than the other? Since there's such a definitive line, I'm leaning towards the skein being unevenly speckled. Have you ever experienced this before?

Join me over at Carole's for today's Three on Thursday link up. Hopefully, assuming Hurricane Dorian doesn't blow us away, I'll be back here tomorrow to show you an even more recently finished project.
