The Paddock Hills Shawl by Gamer Babe Knits is part of the latest Sun and Fog Collection - a collaboration between Northern California Bay Area knit and crochet designers, yarn dyers, and yarn shops. I'm thrilled to be participating and to have provided the yarn for this beautiful design. The sample in the photo was knit in my Midas colorway and it's the perfect lightweight wrap for summertime!
- 2 x 100g skeins of Hearty Sock in a choice of either Midas, Siren's Song, or Boysenberry

Paddock Hills Shawl is an hourglass-shaped shawl with shifting mesh lace patterns and bands of eyelets and cables. Two sections are worked separately and then joined together. Decreases in the mesh sections form the shawl's hourglass shape.

Every skein is dyed with professional acid dyes and with a lot of love and care! I use a variety of techniques to get unique colorways. One of the beauties of hand-dyed yarn is that each skein will be slightly unique - some may have more speckles, some a little more concentration of a color. While I do use specially crafted formulas to keep colorways as consistent as possible, no two skeins will be exactly the same. I recommend that you alternate skeins every couple of rows when using more than one skein of the same colorway. If you order multiple skeins, I will do my best to match them as best I can.
Please note that while I always try my best capture the colors correctly when photographing, with different monitors colors can vary greatly in appearance. I am the sole owner and dyer at Speckled Finch Studios and only dye in small batches.
Recommended care: hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
**Regarding Gauge: Please note that gauge varies depending on the knitter, needle size and project. Please make sure to do a gauge swatch when knitting a pattern. Additional gauge and suggested needle info can be found at the Craft Yarn Council here.
