Mara Shawl 

Happy Independence Day!!!  Here we are right in the middle of a hot and dry summer and I’m knitting heavy duty shawls with worsted weight yarn.  I have all of my stash listed on Ravelry and lately I’ve been scrolling to the bottom of my list to find my oldest yarns. I’ve been doing really […]

Imbue Shawl 

I love how my most recent shawl turned out. I knit it with some yarn that I bought in December of 2014 to use for some color work hats. I had found that the baby alpaca yarn was so soft that was slippery and hard to work with. It split when I was trying to knit with it. I was […]

The Because I Love You Wrap

WOW, I might be a bit biased but isn’t this shawl stunning? It’s the Because I Love You Wrap by Amy Meeks. She’s the Sister of the designer of the shawl that I knit last week. Aren’t they both super talented designers? RAVELRY NOTES I knit this shawl with yarn that I dyed several months […]

My First Wendy Sky Shawl

When I first heard about the Wendy Sky Shawl I knew that I had to make one in colors that my Sissy Brittany would have liked. Wendy’s Sister Debby designed the pattern in her memory and 20% of the all pattern sales will be donated to the San Diego School District’s Program for hearing impaired and deaf children. What […]

The Ashton Shawlette

The Ashton Shawlette was knit with 430 yards (0.24 miles) of bare yarn that I ordered from Knit Picks and then dyed with tea. I used US size 4 (3.5 mm) knitting needles. I love how the details in the lace turned out so beautifully and it feels so soft and cozy while I am […]

Hitchhiker Shawl

I finally got around to knitting the Hitchhiker Shawl. I have wanted to knit this pattern for well over a year. I used some of the Unicorn Farts yarn that I hand dyed a while back. I also have some pink Princess Farts yarn that I plan to use to make a second Hitchhiker Shawl […]

Pegasus Farts Triangle

I have been super busy with end of the summer children’s activities and knitting my first lace shawl. This shawl took me a week and a half to create. I love how detailed the lace is although I sort of regret my choice of yarn. I think that the lace would look better in a […]

Pimpelliese Shawl

  I love this shawl!!! I knit it using the free Pimpelliese pattern found on Ravelry. I used US # 3 (3.25 mm) knitting needles and Knit Picks Stroll Tonal yarn in the shade of Blue Violet. Since I don’t own a yarn scale. I guessed at where the mid point should be and luck […]
