Taking My Knittin On The Road
Forest Canopy Shawl
I liked this pattern so much I'm doing one more but in a lace weight yarn. What I like so much is that the instructions are both written and charted. Those who know me know that I'm a total dummy when it comes to charts. I think that part of my brain just simply doesn't work. The pattern is for a shoulder shawl and I did about 6 extra repeats because I wanted it larger. I also ran out of yarn and had to dye some more. I didn't get it quite right but it doesn't look too odd. I can't decide whether to keep it for myself or take it to Germany for my elderly aunt.
These socks in progress are knit with Noro sock yarn. I love the colors hate the way it's spun. It's a single ply yarn an has very thin and thick areas. I've had to cut some of the very thin stuff out because I don't think it will wear well. In spite of the lovely color it's not a yarn I will buy again.
The pattern is from Knitty.com called Broadripple and is easy to memorize.
And last but not least, I found a lovely sock yarn in pretty colors that I'm anxious to start. I haven't decided on a pattern yet but they may end up just plain vanilla.
So that's it for now. There will be no Internet access where we are going so for the next ten or twelve days or so I'm out of the loop...ciao for now
