Sunshine Yellow Shawl


Finally, finally I am posting about this shawl.  I must say that I'm in love with it and it was worth the crazy stitch patterns.  I confess I wasn't a fan of the first stitch pattern because it was unreadable.  I find I dislike writing down which row I'm on so I don't do it, and my locking stitch marker system didn't help so it was guess work on my part.  I think I guessed correctly.


I will wear the shawl like the above photo. Oh so cozy warm and so so soft :)


The pattern is Laminaria, the yarn is Manos Lace and my project page is here.  Modifications were six repeats of the star pattern and a full eight repeats of the blossom chart.  I squeaked by with enough yarn....barely-eliminating the last purl row before bind off.


Oh and the knitting surgery went well.  It was a dropped stitch and I fixed it as best as I could.  Only I know where it is and I have a difficult time finding it.  It saddens me that it exists but well....we can't all be perfect all the time, right?

Also I wanted to add that a sweet friend of mine on Ravelry has posted a shawl pattern of her own design, the proceeds up through the end of October are going to a very worthy cause.  If you're interested pop over to Melissa's blog and maybe purchase this lovely pattern.

  8. It came out as beautiful as I thought it would :-) I love that it looks light enough to drape around your neck but not so warm that you will sweat to death! Being perfect is over-rated anyway. Enjoy your new hand knit!
