Notes

Using a combo of these in stripes in each section, from bottom up:

Ooak & Frenchman Bay
Ooak & Salt Marsh
Mme Rosmerta (overdyed) & Frenchman Bay Mme Rosmerta (overdyed) & Salt Marsh

And maybe a 5th section of … something & something (Salt Marsh & Frenchman Bay?). We’ll see.

Change of plans, decided way back in December: only using 3 colors with 2 different stripe combinations - see above. I’m just going to repeat those until I run out of yarn or the shawl seems big enough or I lose patience with it.

I finished with a few extra colored stripes/rows of wedges, and knit a 3 row garter stitch border at the top just to neaten things up and use up more yarn. I’m down to maybe 15 yards of the dark green used to stripe with the other brighter colors. Washed & blocked, it’s drying, and it grew! I can’t wait for cooler weather to wear it.
