First CO Object of the New Year!

I CO a NEW project!  Infact, it's the FIRST new project I've CO in 2012!  I'd seen many knitters/podcasters knitting the Stripe Study Shawl by Veera Valimaki and I was getting the itch to CO as well.  Then I noticed that Veera had another pattern, a sister pattern, called Different Lines.  Different Lines is a different take on the Stripe Study Shawl.  So I decided to CO Different Lines instead.  I'm knitting this shawl in Wollmeise 100% Superwash Merino in the Feldmaus colorway (that's the brown) & Three Irish Girls Adorn Sock in the Interlaken colorway (the blue/green color) on US Size 6 (4.00mm) needles.  It's a simple garter st shawl that utilizes color changes and short rows to give it an interesting shape.  When finished, it should have 14 of the contrasting color stripes (the blue/green).  I'm 6 stripes in and it's working up fast.  The pattern is super easy to memorize and it's GREAT TV knitting!

Knit On!



  1. I really like that shawl. My mum wants to knit one up so maybe I will show her yours and see if she wants to knit it. Your colors look great together.

  2. Very nice! I've yet to cast on anything for the year... stuck in crochet I guess. Can't wait to see it finished!

  3. Love your color choices. This will be amazing.

  4. Hi I love your color choices. I haven't purchased the pattern yet but I had a question - Can the colors be carried up one side so there are not so many ends to weave in? If I could do that I would more likely do this shawl. Thank you in advance for any advice you could give me. You can reach me thru Ravelry PM to TMYinHNL
