I joined the Ravelry Group, 12 Shawls in 2012 the first part of this year but I’m slightly behind so I decided the month of May was the perfect month to catch up a bit and knit at least two small shawls.
I love quick projects and this past week I casted on Arroyo by Sarah H. Wolf using my stash yarn of Wisdom Yarns in Poems, a very light fingering weight sock yarn. This took me a total of five days, including the time for blocking. If you are a beginner lace knitter, this is a very easy pattern and would be perfect for you to try.
Yarn: Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock in Ivy Trails.
Needles: US 4 (3.5 mm)
Modifications: I added beads on rows 10, 18, and 26 of the lace pattern, and I added an eyelet row at the very end before binding off.
Start Date: May 23, 2012
End Date: May 28, 2012

I’m looking forward to wearing this as a scarf this fall and can’t wait! This evening I’m casting on a beautiful project, the Double Leaf Saroyan by Liz Abinante and I’ll be using my stash of Malabrigo Rios in the colorway of Zarzamora. This will be another quick knit project that I should be done with in less than two weeks!
What quick knit lace projects do you enjoy?
Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
