Here's a new shawl. The pattern was a Ravelry one - Lagniappe. I like the fact that in the top section none of the rows are alike - it adds interest and is more fun to do. And the fringe was time consuming but is pretty cool.....I think I will be using that technique again. I did it in a chunky wool.
for a Triangular Knitted Lace Shawl. The class is coming up in April and you can pick from any of several easy lace patterns we have selected. There will be the option of using words or charts with these patterns and this makes it so easy. I put beads in this one so we'll be learning how to add beads to your knitting too.
Taiyo Sport is a new Noro yarn – all the great colorways of regular Taiyo in a sport weight version.
A really nice Egyptian Cotton in DK weight arrived this morning. Eight colors, 273 yds/skein, really pretty.
And we have new yarns from Feza. They specialize in hand tied novelty yarns and there are some really pretty ones I got Monday and more that came in today. I can’t wait to weave with them too.
