All About Knitting


Shadow Shawl is finished, I have’nt blocked it yet. Excuse the dog paw prints around it , Misty was checking it out. Here’s another picture of my daughter modeling it.


I used the following wool:

                   3 x Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool Color 19

                   3 Koigu Color P305 Dye Lot 236

It is a little shorter than I expected but my Mom loves it.

My Mom also wanted some Ruffle Scarfs, so I found a quick knit 




The 2 scarfs together are shown here by D#1


 OK , Wool snobs warning, you may not want to read any further (I have become a wool snob too), this wool cost me 99 cents per skein in Hobby Lobby. Each scarf uses about 1 skein. I used the following:

       Pattern:  Potato Chip Scarf from KnitPicks

                     1 x CARON Simply Soft  Violet

                      1 X Caron Simply Soft Lavender

I actually bought about 10 balls of this Caron wool in coordinating colors to make more of these scarfs. I also bought this


   Its my new knitting bag in celebration of the 4th July, it is perfect for holding small projects. Well thats all my knitting for now, have a great day.

    Oh, it’s good you don’t live closer, because I would have to steal that shawl – that’s my very favorite color of Koigu. Paired with black – YUM.

    The shawl is gorgeous!!!! I may be a yarn snob, BUT would absolutely knit a cute scarf out of 99-cent yarn! You can’t go wrong!
