Harbour Lights shawl started at knit group last night, almost halfway through set-up charts.

This is going to be a wonderful, gorgeous shawl. I'm looking forward to hours of pleasurable knitting.

Bugga! in color Shelob, a variegated purple.

One of my knitting friends is reducing her stash and I scored this skein! With cashmere in it, I'm thinking scarf or shawl - yumm!

GAA block #18 by Joan Schrouder

An easy and quick block to knit, just be very careful when you block it to keep the puffy ribs lined up and puffy. Glad I have a 12 inch square marked out on the blocking box I'm using.

Three skeins of Jamieson's Shetland in Dog Rose and two in Foxglove. I love how the two colors work together. You can either buy the single pattern by download or, the better buy, get the Sock Report book for $16.00 and have all the wonderful patterns. There are two sock patterns and another shawl pattern that I want to knit!

Even before washing and blocking, the Shetland yarn shows the beauty of the lace. Can't wait to wear it!

Stornoway charts in file folder


Stornoway charts in file folder, a photo by BlueDragon2 on Flickr.
Charts copied and taped down in order of pattern. Each chart is copied so a complete row is shown. This way, I don't have to worry about forgetting to do a chart or doing them in the wrong order. While each chart has a different number of rows, I just repeat the shorter ones as needed. If I want, I can put a blank piece of paper in the file folder to make hash marks on so I know how many rows I've knit. That way, if I want to recreate this later, say, for my DH, I know how many rows I need to work in my handspun to get a certain length.
