It's Still Shawls!

After starting the year knitting lots of cowls, I moved onto shawls .... the one currently on my needles is my third so far.  It might be about time for something else!

This Meteor Shower Shawl is the perfect size to wrap up in - and I used Northbound Knitting's Merino/Silk Fingering and Tosh Merino Light so it's super cozy, too.  I'd never knitted a pattern like this before - there are several changes to the pattern that keep it interesting and it's easy enough to be a good traveling project.

I worked the next one up with Madelinetosh unicorn tails in the Bonfire color collection - enough similar they all work together and enough different to be interesting.  The pattern is Francoise Danoy's Simply Familiar - another perfect traveling knit.  This shawl is lighter than the first, so I've actually be able to use it on chilly evenings.

After my current shawl project (photos coming soon if I can get it finished!), I think I'll switch to something from a more summery yarn - maybe a tee.  I just got some Nerd Girl Winning in Windu that's been calling to me!

Happy Creating!  Deborah
