What We Knit: Sarah’s Nymphalidea Shawl


 I have really enjoyed working on my Nymphalidea. It’s the second shawl that I’ve started, and I was in search of a burst of color. I found Noro Shiraito to be the perfect solution, and I combined this with Twirl’s Petals yarn in Twirling Ollie (black). The solid neutral tone of Twirl against Noro’s changing colors creates a nice contrast that I could see being a colorful accent to any basic outfit.


As a newer knitter, I like that this shawl appears somewhat intricate, but is actually quite simple to knit! I enjoyed working with both yarns, particularly Twirl’s unique, raw handspun qualities, which have an interesting texture.
