some finished knitting...








and I love it.
Made with fingering weight merino wool,
it is soft and feathery light,
but drape it over your shoulders
or around the neck
and it provides a cozy warmth...perfect for
those times
I've just been sitting at the desk
or sewing machine.
This pattern calls for Noro Kureyon Sock yarn
which creates beautiful stripes...I had
Knit Picks Stroll Multi superwash merino
on hand, so that's what I used.
It did not stripe,
but I'm happy with the effect all the same.
This will surely be a perfect
layer for Spring.

Ravelry notes here.

  1. When I read 'shawl' I thought either formal or grandmotherly, but this is very contemporary! I love it.

    And the colors remind me very much of the Sky Scarf project. Original idea for it here http://www.leafcutterdesigns.com/projects/SkyScarf.pdf ...my take on it shown here http://fourmilesnorthofnowhere.blogspot.com/2012/01/making-it-monday-sky-scarf-progress.html

    I so enjoy reading your blog!

  2. What a lovely shawl and such pretty colours. When I had a minor surgery last spring ladies from our Church sent a prayer shawl. They meet each week and offer prayers as they knit or crochet. Not as delicate looking as yours, but so comfy to wrap around my shoulders on cooler nights while at the computer.

  5. I really like that, I'm almost finished a poncho made out of leftovers. Is there a link somewhere to the pattern on your blog? I'd love to make one.

    Cheers!

  6. Beautiful shawl.I am so in envy of your knitting talents.I taught myself how to knit, and I am still not comfortable with anything too difficult. I have been spinning yarn and LOVING that! I really should work more on my knitting skills, however, so I could put all that yarn to good use!! Blessings~~Shine

    1. And I am envious of your yarn spinning skills--something I have never tried, but it must be wonderful to create your own yarn!...Deb

  7. What a wonderful little covering~

    like you I sometimes just need a little bit of cover to keep the chill away.

    I like the color and it seems to suit you!

  11. Your sweater is beatiful. I have a question about the red/white dish cloth you knit. When you insert the red stripe of yarn what do you do with the ends. I knited the dish cloth but now I have all the loose ends of the white and also the red. Could you explain how you tie them all in at the ends. Thank you in advance. I hope you know what I'm talking about. lol
