Another evening and another knitting project :). This times it’s a narrow lacey shawl, my first one! Yup…I’ve wanted to knit a shawl for quite a while and kept putting it off, until I found this pattern. It’s not a wide shawl, more like a scarf but it’s what I was looking for …at least for my first attempt at a shawl. I have knit lacey pattterns before so that part doesn’t intimidate me lol. It’s working on some 286 stitches ..yikes. Needless to say I have ready unraveled 2 rows and started over ( lost count somewhere ) and nearly did it again at row 10. But I found my way after frogging ( a new term for this old lady lol ) I’ve picked stitches back before ….lots of times. But I didn’t know it was called frogging …I got a laugh out of that one. And I’ve seen others use that term but I didn’t want to ask lol. Well well. Now I know. And it was a successful frogging lol. Can I say that? 😳
Now that all stitches are accounted for and in their proper place , row 11 is done . The pattern is from Red Heart and called Lily Cresent Shawlette . I’m using Blue Moon , Socks That Rock , 100% superwash merino lightweight . It’s a 155g skein that’s approx. 405 yards / 370m The colour is Mulberry in Shaded Solids. I’ve had this yarn for a while now, my original plan was to use it for socks but it’s such a nice yarn I wanted to use it making a scarf or ……shawl. Not that I don’t like to use really nice yarn for socks. I love socks ..! I didn’t want to hide this beautiful yarn and its colour on my feet lol.
