This has certainly been my year to make shawls. I have completed 4 shawls, since February. Two have been mystery patterns, one was glitzy and the latest has been a simple shoulder cover.
First, the simple one, that I finished on Monday.
It is called the Yarn Crawl Shawl
, and I knit it in Baby Jacquard yarn from Bernat. A simple knit that I think has a sort of Jane Austen look, with the ruffle around the bottom.
I also finished Birds of a Feather.
This one caused me many problems. I think I knit the whole thing one and a half times, because I kept messing up. However, it is now finished, blocked and all the ends are woven in.
It is hard to get a picture of the whole shawl because it is about 8 ft. long.
Note the kittens, wrestling in the top left of the second picture!
Here is a closeup of the pattern.
I chose to do the asymmetrical finish on the last section and the little bars of colour are kind of neat.
I am not sure where this one will end up. I think it will become a gift for someone.
One of my readers was asking why Dolly hasn't made an appearance lately, so here she is, with her fan club.
She is such a good girl, letting the little ones climb all over her.
