Full Disclosure

Since I'll be turning (literally) a milestone tonight on my French Trellis Scarf (Stole) I thought I should put out to the ether a list of WIPs and not so WIPs.

  • Kimono Shawl
    Pattern: Folk Shaws by Cheryl Oberle
    Yarn: Handmaided Sea Silk in Ebony (3 skeins)
    Needles: US 5 metal circs from the 80's. Don't remember the brand but they work.
    30% complete
    Notes: I love this pattern and of course the Sea Silk is amazing especially in Ebony. I've stalled on this one due to working on shawls lighter colored yarns for Spring and Summer. This will be a good one to finish up in the Fall.
  • Wing 'O the Moth
    Pattern: Anne of Knitspot Fiber Lounge
    Yarn: Claudia Hand Painted Mohair in Woodland Moss
    Needles: Addi Lace Turbo's in US 5
    Progress: Not much... I've cast on and done a few rows.
    Notes: LOVE the pattern and yarn combo and knew it was a match made in heaven.
    The reason for not working on this is frankly I need to tink back to find and
    fix a mistake on the previous row and then was distracted by other shawls that
    I've since completed.
  • Hidcote Garden Shawl
    Pattern: Miriam of Mimknits
    Yarn: Claudia Hand Painted Silk Lace in John B
    Needles: US 4 Rosewood circular needles
    Progress: Same as WOM above.
    Notes: Again I love the pattern and yarn but this was the first lace weight in this style
    of shawl construction and it was a learning experience which is good. I'll
    probably frog and start over fresh but this will be a lovely garden of
    orange, red and gold poppies.
  • French Trellis Scarf
    Pattern: Victorian Lace Today
    Yarn: Habu Textiles 'kusaki zome' Silk 2/10 in 23 Ryokuyo
    Needles: Knit Picks US4 circs
    Progress: Just finishing the bottom border and ready to turn and do the insertion pattern.
    Notes: This is classified as a scarf but since mine will block out between 16" and 18" I'm putting
    it in the stole category. This has to be done by the 29th... see below.
  • Mystery Stole 3
    Pattern: Mystery Stole 3 by Melanie
    Yarn: Habu Textiles Tsumugi Silk in White (really a vanilla)
    Needles: Addi Turbo Lace US 4 circs
    Progress: Swatched, blocked and ready to go. The first clue will be revealed on the 29th.

There are many more shawl projects in the wings waiting the perfect yarn or pattern or concept from me.

Tomorrow.... Non Shawl/Stole WIPs

I see you liked the Kimono Shawl too. I have to admit, the pattern got a little boring after a while, but the cashmere I used for it makes up for the time it took.
