Paravel Wrap is in the Pattern Shop

If you saw our kitchen reno, you'll know I have a small obsession with this colour of green. Saturated, bright, with a touch of ochre to it. (I have since repainted that kitchen wall to a more soothing avocado green so you can't see it from space any more).
The new Paravel Wrap (which at different times was the Paravel Shawl, Paravel Scarf and Paravel Stole, but I liked the sound of Wrap best) is such a treat in CashLuxe fine. The yarn is a fingering weight, with a little nylon, so I suppose it's intended for socks. But I like trying out fingering weight on big needles (4.0mm) for a lightweight drape. And CashLuxe wet blocks beautifully.
I almost love the reverse ("wrong" side) of Paravel better. There I go being sidist again.
Oh, and why is there a Paravel Hat and a Paravel Wrap? What's all this Paravel business? We listen to a lot of audiobooks, and the Narnia series is a favourite, and Cair Paravel is where the Kings Peter and Edmund, Queens Susan and Lucy, are crowned. How can there be two kings and two queens? You'll have to read the books...
