Test Knitting - The Tree and Arbor Wrap by Michelle Miller

Mid last year, I got the opportunity to test knit the "Tree and Arbor Wrap" by Michelle Miller. This pattern was really easy and intuitive, and I would love to make it again. I used KnitPicks Palette yarn in the Peach colorway, but I found it too pale, so I overdyed the shawl after I finished knitting it. I used McCormick and Wilton food dyes, and white vinegar to set the dye and make the shawl colorfast. It came out a beautiful burnt orange color, almost like the setting sun. I gave this shawl to a friend who had just undergone chemotherapy for cancer. As always, pictures are courtesy of Irene N. of livedstories
