Kindness Shawl 2 Finished!

It’s finally done and it did get a bit bigger with this yarn but it’s still too small for my liking and I think I will be using it from time to time. It’s a lovely pattern and easy to knit. I think I have to make this one again someday and make it bigger.

I have knitted this one already once but the yarn was wrong for it and so beautiful, so I frogged it so I can use that yarn for something else instead. The yarn i was using was #Pro Lana Golden Socks 4-frach” in the colourway 932 and dye lot: 60988. Stunning blue colour. I couldn’t block it properly to get the points out in the lace and it ended up way to small and short.

I would love to get my hands on more of this one in this colour but it looks like it’s a hard task.

So now I’m knitting this again in Malabrigo Lace and the colour is: 237 Cuarenta.

And this yarn is much better for this shawl.

The Snowmelt MKAL


I have joined the Snowmelt MKAL on Ravelry and was not pleased with my firs choice of three colours, so I frogged it and ordered two new colours to complement the one that I kept from the tree first one.

MKAL 1st colours


The new colours came Feb 28th so I started as soon as I could and last night the Clue 1 was ready and I am so much more pleased with the look now.


Here is clue 1 done in the new colours. I’m very pleased!

Reyna Shawl off the needles

Finally finished this shawl that towards the end really gave me big problems which ended up making this shawl to be a month late. Never mind, It’s done and I love it. I bought the yarn in Dublin this year in February. It’s Hedgehog Fibres Sock and the colourway is Spell. I love the colour of this yarn but I don’t like the yarn. It’s splitting a lot and it’s very squeaky. It feels like you are knitting with cotton and not wool, and it is 90% Merino and 10% Nylon. And when I was soaking it for the blocking it bled like mad. 🙁 So I will not buy any more of this yarn and I have two other colours in my stash of this one, so I will use them but not buy any new ones.

Neapolitan Shawl ready

This was a really fun knit and it was mainly down to the fact that I steped outside my comfort zone and picked colours that I noemally would never put together, but I love how it turned out. Pattern can be found on Ravelry and is by Kay F Jones

The yarn is : Cascade Yarns Cascade 220® Fingering
