First, the Autumn shawl done in Jojoland Rhythm yarn, colorway M09.
entrelac. It never gets boring to me, especially using a yarn like this. And the cobweb frill edging...while casting on over 300 stitches was daunting, it worked up quickly, and I love how it looks.
Aren't the colors fantastic?While I've got all my notes on my Rav page for this, I just want to point out a couple of things for anyone wanting to make this, because they are mentioned in a lot of notes about this shawl. First, many people find 10 balls is not enough. It is close, and probably depends on who tightly you knit. I chose to omit the last row of ribbing on the edging just to be sure I'd have enough to bind off and stitch the edging onto the shawl. I had about seven yards of yarn left over. I might have been able to eke out that last row, but I was happy to have not had the worry. (Whew!) Also, I read comments where people said the edging wasn't nearly long enough to attach to the whole edge of the shawl. Dude, this edging is stretchy...again, I had no problem. I wonder, though, if some people maybe blocked the shawl before attaching the edging? That might cause the problem. I attached then blocked the whole thing and it worked great.
Next, the Traveling Woman shawl, done in Fleece Artist Merino 2/6 in the Moss colorway...
I am so enjoying lace patterns this year! This one was quite simple. It took me only six days to knit.
Womans, er, Women?
Next, my A Little Jazz scarf/shawlette, knit in Fiesta Yarns Baby Boom. This was the March TLE Sock Club colorway, and the pattern was the non-sock pattern that came in the kit.
It was a really fast knit. I started it at the airport on my way to St. Louis and finished it the second night I was there. Not sure how much use I'll get from it, but it is kinda cute. I mainly chose to make it out of a desire to have mindless knitting to work on at Fling.
Alrighty...going into the "way back" machine, so to speak, these are projects that I finished months ago and only finally got blocked and photographed.
First, a Crofter's Cowl in Cascade 220 Superwash (not sure of the color)...
And last, the Marian Seaman Scarf that I test knit for Cosy a few months ago. I made mine out of Jo Sharp 8 Ply DK Pure Wool in the Heron colorway. I'm not sure if this yarn is still being produced (it was in my stash from when I worked at the yarn shop), but it was really lovely to work with.
