Knitting News


On our way to Lake Placid I knit about fourteen rows of the banana leaf shawl that needed to be ripped out because of a foolish mistake.  So all of my car knitting didn't account for much progress.  However, despite the temporary setback, I'm ready to do the last section of this shawl.

Maybe next week I will be done with this lace weight project?


I love knitting the Jewel Box shawl and watching the gradient colors slowly change from one to another.  This is a simple knit that is perfect for my babysitting day or for reading and knitting at the same time.  Part of me wants to savor the knitting time I spend adding rows, the yarn is that decadent.


What are you working on this week?

  1. That is a gorgeous gradient yarn! Wow... the color transition is just incredible! As for my knitting... I am all about a pair of leggings for some beloved tiny legs this week. I have been enlisted to help with my Genevieve's Halloween costume!

  2. That gradient is dyed masterfully and it's knitting up in a lovely way. I'm anxious to see what both of the shawls look like off the needles and blocked to their full beauty!

  3. Oh my! The gradient yarn you are using is splendid! I can't wait to see both shawls (just like Bonny!). The Banana Leaf one is intriguing to me.

  4. I am currently making one of your scarf patterns, whose name escapes me. ☺️ It’s such an easy, enjoyable pattern, perfect for knitting while watching Outlander! Once this is completed I will be starting a wedding shawl for my daughter!

  5. Such beautiful projects. I have a sock on the needles and that is it at the moment. I have ordered some yarn this morning to make something for my daughter and am looking forward to getting that project on the needles.

  6. Both beautiful projects but I do love the gradient yarn, such a wonderful array of colour. Thank you for your prayers Karen, we were both touched.

  9. I just LOVE that gradient! I'm so sorry you had to rip back on the other project, specially if it's lace weight. It's pretty yarn though so on the bright side, you get to spend more time with it. :)

  10. The gradient shawl is going to be beautiful. Actually both these shawls are going to be beautiful. Negative knitting is the berries. I have a couple of lace weight skeins - same yarn and colorway- and every time I look at it I wonder if I have the patience to knit with it. You are inspiring me. I ripped out a little of my sweater today but it is back on the needles. I adjusted the raglan decreases. I have socks and another pair of scrappy mitts when I get tired of the sweater.

  11. I haven't knit lace weight and struggle with fingering weight at times. You are patient to rip out the wrong and do it right. Glad the gradient is visual entertainment while being knit up.
