Another Shawl!

I can't believe it has been a whole week since I blogged! My first week back to school after winter break was busy, not in a bad way, but I was pretty darn tired when I came home at night.

I do wear my shawls, but not as often as I should, given how much work they are! I had decided not to make any more for a while. That decision, however, was out the door after I surveyed my stash with idea of knitting it down in mind.

I have a lot of sock yarn. A lot. Really. Gazing over it -- and feeling a bit overwhelmed -- it occurred to me that there were some two-color shawls that would use up two skeins of sock yarn. This rolled up blog of yarn will eventually be a Hecate, another beautiful design by Kirsten Kapur:

  2. I love shawls, but I hardly ever wear them. Great idea using the two skeins. I need to follow suit!

  3. Maybe you need to decide on your gift list early this year and assign some shawls to those names? Because if you have the yarn and love to knit them but seldom where them, then this might be the answer! Lovely blue!

  4. there's ALWAYS room for another shawl.....

    in the bushfires that were here recently we talked about what we would pack to take and my husband said 'you know you'd have to grab your box of shawls. You couldn't lose those.'

    I love that he recognised their value!
