Yes, I jumped on the bandwagon (not the one used in the parade or procession, haha) and made my own Color Affection shawl by Veera Valimaki ^_^

I started it a long time ago, haha… Back in August, right before I had my wisdom teeth out. I made great progress until about the middle of September, when it got put on hold, for some reason.

After New Years happened, I got on a huge kick to finish EVERYTHING…(Which you might have been able to tell, due to all the FO posts recently :-P)

So it got finished! I love love love it! I think I’ll definitely be making another one in the future. I like this one that I found on Ravelry with just color blocks (you need a Ravelry account to see… it’s free though! ^_^)

I think the color blocking is a cool idea… once I figure out what school I’m going to, I might have to make myself another one ;-P

I got a Miss Babs’ Color Affection Kit with her Yummy 2-ply sock yarn :-) I love how soft the yarn is after blocking… It was soft enough to begin with, but now? It’s sooo squishy! And smells good too ^_^

And the colors together are just too awesome. Gotta love the neon and neutral fad… Ah, there I go again.. jumping on that bandwagon too ;-)

    I love the color combination. And I hear you about the bandwagon – I started mine April last year. I finished it some time over the summer, but I still haven’t uploaded the photographs and put up a project entry on Ravelry, much less blogged about it

        I have a skein of almost neon-y chartreuse and an eyesearingly bright purple (they didn’t look that bright online), and I wasn’t sure what to do with them, but I think you have to right idea on how to knit them up.

        You’ve convinced me, I’ll put up pics of my Color Affection next week

    The green and grey are just stunning. The more of these I see the more tempted I am to knit one. Term is starting back on Monday so some garter stitch might be just what I need when I’m tired.

      Thank you! You should totally do it! It was really therapeutic, haha :-P When I make another one, I’d definitely bring it to school with me to work on :-P
