- 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.
Progress: 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.
