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… Continue reading Imbue Shawl

Aren't they both super talented designers? RAVELRY NOTES I knit this shawl with yarn that I dyed several months… Continue reading The Because I Love You Wrap

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… Continue reading My First Wendy Sky Shawl

Lafayette Shawl

This is the first time that I have knit a pattern off of the info band on a skein of yarn. My Mother gave me the yarn for Christmas last year and then she hinted that she liked the yarn. So to be a smarty pants I decided to knit the pattern that came with it and… Continue reading Lafayette Shawl

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.

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… Continue reading Pegasus Farts Triangle

Purple Color Affection Shawl

My latest shawl is done!!! I love the colors. I love how the stripes line up and make up an interesting visual texture. I love how soft and cozy it is but... I hate how the shawl refuses to lay flat. Once I get it to lay flat in one area it ripples up in… Continue reading Purple Color Affection Shawl

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… Continue reading Pimpelliese Shawl
