WIP Wednesday/Yarn Along

I am happy to announce that I am only two lace repeats and an edging away from finishing my Shaw's Cove crescent shawl! From the prior link you can find the original pattern designed by Chrissy at LeftSideKnits. It is the most difficult pattern I have ever attempted, however it is the best pattern I have ever had the pleasure to knit. There are painstakingly detailed written directions as well as charts. You never have to guess how many stitches should be on the needles because it is written there. As well as how many repeats of each section you should have. It is a really great pattern for an intermediate beginner looking for a small challenge. Until July 11th you can purchase the pattern at a discounted price, for $2.50 from which it will increase to $5. I highly recommend this pattern! I am absolutely loving mine so far.

Other works in progress include items for the Etsy store. Soon I will be posting stitch markers and a few hats. Stay tuned!

I am currently re-reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien in honor of the movie which is set to be released Dec. 14th. I plan to re-read the Lord of the Rings trilogy as well. After which, does anyone have any good reads they suggest?

I hope you all can join Ginny's Yarn Along and Tamis Amis's WIP Wednesdays.


  1. Love the shawl! Your color choices are fantastic. I love orange.

  2. Your shawl is spectacular. I love the colours you have chosen. I would never have thought of those.

  3. Oh my, that is looking even more lovely than before! I especially love how the pattern alternates between stripes and lace panels, I'll bet that it never gets boring. I'm also still in love with the color scheme!

  4. You go girl...keep on knitting.

    I am working on a Christmas Fairy for Friday. I hope to have it done by then so I can share the pattern.

  5. love the stripes!

    dunno if its worth making any book recommendations at the moment, you'll be set up for a while at least!!

  6. It's coming along nicely. The stripes look good!

  7. It's always so fun to find a pattern that is both complex but a joy to knit. Your shawl is humming along!

  8. Can't wait to see the finished project! Gorgeous colors! :)
