Test knit starting soon in the Nimble Knits group.

Knitting this in solidarity with family members and other friends who are affected by the same-sex marriage voting issue here in Au.

I’ve kept the design fairly minimalist to let the colours shine in all their glory. Call it a mini rainbow celebration. :)

(The sizing is adaptable, so for a bigger rainbow celebration, all you need is more of the background colour.)

160x50cm (63x20in)

I climbed the apple tree to take some of these photos, and had to laugh when I got up there only to find I’d shaken petals all over the shawl.

Started trans @ 27g of navy used (of 55g available.
Xg used by purple line
Xg used by blue line
30g used by leaf green line
34g used by yellow line
38g used by orange line
42g used by red line
47g used by pink line
54g used in final 3 rows and BO. (50g from big skein, and most of e mini skein in the rainbow set.)

71g total, including 23g total of the rainbow set in the stripes. (Yay, I’ll get to us the rest in a second project!)
(500m/547y in total.)

Of the rainbow colours, they increase from a little over 1g for first colour to a bit over 2g for later colours.
