This is the first shawl that I made to learn lace knitting and fell in love with this pattern and I have now made 16 of this one and why this is number 15 is that the first number 15 was made in a yarn I didn’t like how it turned out in so I frogged it. So now I have made it in a colour and yarn that I have for long time wanted this one in. So do I use them all? No! is the answer because lots of them have been presents and gifts.
So here is “Take 2” of the number 15 of this shawl.
I am so pleased about how it turned out and I love using this one.
You start with the border and then you pick up stitches along the whole border and then knit the rest with sort rows.

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.
Next shawl was a quick one and the first one I ever done in cotton.
It turned out so small but expanded well when it was blocked. I did find it hard to tie the ends properly.
Loved the picot bind off.

Knitted this beautiful shawl in a stunning colour but wrong yarn. I could not block it properly because of the bind off I did (Icelandic bind off). So I might rip it all up, knit it again with a better yarn and use the stunning blue one for something else, because I have 2 skeins of it.
So here it is, The Snowmelt Shawl!
Yarn : Regia Colour 3764 and 02242, Opal 5188
Needles: addi click 4mm, 100cm cable
Started: Feb. 18th 2017 Finished: April 4th 2017
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.
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!
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.
Another lovely pattern by : Kay Jones and it was really fun to knit. They yarn is Cascade Yarns Cascade 220® Fingering and you can fint the pattern on Ravelry.
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
