Shawl Ambition

Be sure to pop over to my Momma'Tudes Blog to enter the Soda Stream Giveaway!

I have to say that shawls are my new obsession. Socks were once an obsession (until I realized that knitting one sock of every pair does me absolutely no good whatsoever).

So I am taking a Raglan Shawl Class from Stefanie Japel and LOVE it! Having a hard time with lace chart reading, so I thought this class would be helpful in getting me comfortable in knitting shawls. We're knitting her Mirth: A Fitted Raglan Shawl. I'm knitting it up in Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn in Orange, Red, Pink, Green. As soon as I have something that looks like something, I'll post pics.

I am also knitting up the Forest Canopy Shawl. This is an easy project for a beginner lace knitter like myself. It gets you used to lace and paying attention to what you're doing. (Trust me... Not paying attention + NO lifeline = FROGGING) I'm knitting it using Kraemer Yarns Sterling Silk & Silver Yarn in Majestic colorway. Love the way this is working up. I've just finished my 10th pattern repeat. I think I'll need about 16 pattern repeats total before I can start the bottom edge.

I have just purchased the Theory Shawlette , Milkweed, and Wildflower Lace Scarf patterns.

Why do I have more ambition than time to knit?! It seems so unfair!

  1. Your forest canopy shawl looks so pretty - I love the color you chose.

    I can't wait to see how the glampyre shawl looks with the Noro colors - sounds so beautiful.
