Honey Sunflower Shawl
I finished this little shawlette last week and wanted to share it with you. I was gifted a lovely skein of Cima for Christmas (thanks sis!) and scoured Ravelry for a project. This beautiful skein had only 328 yards which made it a challenge to find a pattern, but I did.
My chart reading was off (user error) so I know where a tiny mistake is but I'm not telling :) I love how the shawl turned out. Oh and I must correct myself. I stated a while back that everyone should knit with a wool silk blend. Ahem, this is an alpaca wool blend....I could have sworn it had silk-it sure felt like it!
I highly recommend the yarn, it was a joy to knit with. The shawl pattern I would say is for an advanced knitter who is very confident with chart reading. It's a beautiful pattern with a lovely lace design edging. Oh and you can make the shawl bigger if you have more yardage.
LOVE!! I think that pattern will be in my queue soon.ReplyDelete
The color of the yarn is so very much a favorite of mine...beautiful.
The color and pattern are great!
Thanks for sharing about the mistake too... Does make me feel better about my own imperfect knitting. :-)
i logged onto flickr for the first time in ages and was first taken aback by the horrible redesign and then immediately saw your shawl and felt much better :)ReplyDelete
lovely job, as always!
Love the color of the yarn and the pattern. Very, very pretty!ReplyDelete
It's gorgeous! I bet nobody will ever notice that mistake anyway!ReplyDelete
Beautiful color! I love it!ReplyDelete
Wow, it is beautiful!ReplyDelete
I love it, Karen! What a fun knit, and you did a great job on it!ReplyDelete
Oh, wow, it's breathtaking, Karen!ReplyDelete
I love the edging! It looks beautiful, and I think it's nice that it's smaller than the usual size. Sometimes you just need a little wrap around your shoulders!ReplyDelete
That is just beautiful. I like the unusual lace pattern.ReplyDelete
Ooooo, that's one honey of a shawl--I *love* it. The color is gorgeous and the pattern is really pretty, but also wearable.ReplyDelete
Oh, and it looks perfect to me!
I really like this color!ReplyDelete
