My Creative Space


Shawl #10

Another finished Project this week.

Pattern: Andrea's Shawl by Kirsten Kapur
Wool: Elements Club 2011 Fire by Nurturing Fibres
Needles: 4mm

I really love the pattern, its really easy and so very effective. I would however do the large shawl - was worried I wouldn't have enough yarn so opted for the medium size.
The yarn- {oh the yarn! are there words for that colourway?} - is just exquisite! This club came as two self striping colourways.  Carle dyed them inspired by a wood fire - so one colour way is the reds of the flames and the other the glow of the coals. Just genius!
This my 10th Shawl in 2011 - still busy with the border of my 11th. I have to say that the progress is rather slow..and I am considering putting it aside for a bit and knitting something else....

10 shawlsT! That is fantastic! Do you sell them or do you wear them all yourself? I am beginning to appreciate the importance of working with good materials (whether paper, wool, fabric, paints, etc.) - it makes such a difference to the finished project. When I experiment (which is most of the time) I feel I simply can't waste the good stuff. But then, if it turns out okay and I like it, I want to kick myself for not having started with better 'ingredients'!
