Flower Garden Lace Shawl


Yesterday, I was itching to cast on something different.  I have plenty to keep me busy with my sweater and my long term shawl knitting and yet I felt the overwhelming urge to have another project on the needles.  As a knitter, I find that two projects isn't enough.  Three to four projects is my sweet spot.  I love to have choices and I love to pick up each one, knit a bit and then turn to another project.

This knit picks lace yarn was gifted to me by a friend a few years ago and I'm thrilled to be using it this week.  Stash diving is rewarding and saves me money (to buy more yarn).   I am pretty in pink!

  7. So that explains it!! And I thought I was the only one. I am currently crocheting 3 afghans, and I am fighting the urge to start something new (not an afghan!!).
    I don't feel so alone now. :-)

  9. Pretty pattern. I currently have 3 projects on my needles, and unbelievably they are all for me. That has NEVER happened before. Finally, selfish knitting.

  10. That pink is beautiful! I think I do better with one or two projects, but that has never stopped me from having four or more cast on!

  13. I love this color, Karen! I also love how your blog has developed over the years and admire your consistency (something I'm sorely lacking lately). I can't wait to see how this shawl turns out! x

  15. I am the same, have to have at least 3 or more projects on the go, love the variety etc. That pattern is gorgeous and so is the wool, looking forward to seeing more of it as the knitting progresses.

  17. nice color! so bright. I know what you mean, it is fun to have a few projects on the go at once, if I get bored of one then I can switch to the other.

  19. That will be very bright and pretty. I looked at your notes and I had already favorited and added the pattern to my library. Maybe shopping the stash should include my Rav library.
