This was a quick knit. After the red Viajante, I really wanted another project on the needles. Knitting has been really soothing for me lately, and it makes for a very productive way to watch Craftsy classes. Probably movies too but I’m not much of a movie person.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve developed a serious interest in shawls, wraps, shrugs, and similar knitted pieces, and have been adding all sorts of beautiful inspirational pictures to my favorites on Ravelry. I don’t know much about wearing shawls, how the different shapes work, and things like that. So I thought I’d experiment for a while. That means there will be more shawls, hehe.
This one is pretty simple, with a stockinette stitch body, an easy lace border along the curved edge, and a narrow lacey border along the straight edge. It’s knitted in one piece, side-to-side. The pattern is called From Dawn Till Dusk shawlette and it is available free on Ravelry. I used a sock yarn from my local yarn store. It’s Regia 4-ply, a blend of 75% wool and 25% nylon.
The yellow is quite bright. It will be perfect with a black dress. Now I just need a matching yellow bracelet and probably also earrings.
I have another Viajante on the needles. This time it’s green and I’m making some changes to it so that it’s shorter and also narrower at the bottom. We’ll see how that works.
See you soon!
