The muted colors reminded me of a sandy beach with gentle waters. If you didn’t get to experience such a beach this summer, be transported on a mini vacation (in your mind) whenever you wear the Journey Shawl. I’ll also be sharing a giveaway for your chance to win some of this beautiful, Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock yarn, so read on for details.

I have always lovingly caressed the Sweet Georgia yarns on display at my local yarn shop, Knitty City, so when I got the chance to try out Tough Love Sock yarn for myself, I was pretty excited.

I will admit that this combo was slightly out of my comfort zone. Once the yarn arrived, though, I was pretty excited.

I realized I was psyching myself out by trying to create an overly complicated project because the Tough Love Sock yarn was so pretty.

I added in some solid rows, asymmetrical color changes, and a pretty border to make things a little more interesting.

One of the great things about sock yarn shawls is that they’re so lightweight and portable.

  1. Sometimes simple sts work best when using a lovely yarn – such as what you accomplished with this Journey Shawl.

    Wish I could get more chances to win but I don’t do all the social media sites 6 out of 25 🙁 but the truth is it only takes 1 to win. thanks for the chance

  2. I’d start with a cowl or shawl, but want to reserve enough yarn to incorporate into a stranded knitting design. I think tonals are nicer than pure solids when doing colorwork.

  3. I would like to make the shawl with this yarn. The yarn looks really soft and i like the hand dyed look of the dye. Thank you for making this giveaway available for a chance to win yarn.

  4. A simple design really is quite stunning with the right yarn! A sock weight shawl is a great idea! I’d probably make this shawl if I win. It really is beautiful! And I’ve developed an addiction to scarf/shawl wearing AND the temps are dropping so it’ll soon be the season for it!!
