I seem to be in a shawl knitting mood, maybe it’s the aspect of lace, which I absolutely love and cherish! There are so many beautiful patterns to knit, but right now I’m looking for simple and quick lace projects. I’ve come across two patterns that will be just the ticket for me, and I can use stash yarn!
But first, here’s an update on my Cottonista Triangle Shawl ~ it’s finished!
Pattern: Cottonista Triangle Shawl by Franziska Collins
Yarn: 4 skeins of Fiesta Yarn Cottonista in Wind Surfer
Blocked Size: 29” x 60’
Started: March 9th
Ended: April 21st
Now, that I have finished my Cottonista Triangle Shawl, I decided that it was time to find a pattern for my 462 yards of sport weight handspun. After searching the patterns in Ravelry, I decided upon Shaelyn by Leila Raabe. This particular pattern has been in my Ravelry queue for some time and I keep coming back to this pattern. Now that I’ve casted on, I think this is going to be perfect to show off my handspun !!
I’m also casting Lace Shawl by Sharon Miller using my stash of Rowan Fine Lace in the color of Vintage. I’ve never knitted with lace weight yarn before so I thought this pattern might be a good one to get me use to this weight of yarn. This shawl pattern has easy to follow instructions that would be perfect for beginner lace knitters and is free to Rowan members. I think this will be perfect to wear all year round and the soft color of the Vintage will go with just about anything I have in my closet.
