Feather and Fan

Even though this shawl is an enjoyable knit, I have made it to the best part!  Feather and Fan stitch always reminds me of my mother.  She would always make a blanket out of feather and fan stitch.  In keeping with tradition, I made a blanket many years ago with the same stitch that is in our family room.  It also makes great baby blankets!  The main reason that I selected this pattern is because I can keep knitting the feather and fan stitch until I run out of yarn.

We went to another tennis match yesterday and boy oh boy was it hot and humid outside.  Our son lost his match but his opponent was polite and quite talented.  He has three more matches and the season is over.  All that is left is district tennis which will be on Saturdays.  It seems like his senior year went so slow and now that April is almost over it is whizzing by!  


  1. I love it! my lovely neighbour has promised to teach me feather and fan as I can only do basic knit, can't wait :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  2. I made a shawl for my mom in feather and fan. I think it is one of my favorite patterns.
    Sorry about your son's lose in tennis. I have a son that loves the game and will play no matter the heat....not me, I'm a wimp!
    Have a great day.

  3. Your shawl is beautiful. I need to try that pattern someday in a shawl or a blanket too.
    Have a great day!

  4. I saw a gorgeous baby blankie in feather and fan the other day. Maybe I'll get brave enough one day to try it!
