This was exactly the kind of knitting I needed this week: simple, fast, and beautiful. I knit this simple things shawl out of Socks That Rock Mediumweight in the Gypsum colorway (thanks Laura!) on size 4 needles. Because the STR was a 380 yard skein, I added a full 10-row repeat of the garter eyelet border pattern to the edging, and I still have a little bit of yarn leftover. I snapped these photos while still in my pajamas this morning, and before Boh and I headed off to make pancakes with our friend T. and pick greens at the farm, I gave this a warm bath and pinned it out on my kitchen table.
The STR seemed to relax nicely, and I think I’ll be quite happy with the blocked size of the shawlette. More pictures soon!
I must need lessons in speed knitting. I’m impressed with how quickly you finish things. The shawl/scarf is lovely.
Very nice! The yarn looks lovely in that pattern.
That flew off the needles, didn’t it?! Good match of yarn to pattern.
Wow! So fast and so pretty! I love the colors … perfect for spring.
I am in awe of how quickly you finished this shawl. Perhaps, I need speed knitting lessons as well. It look beautiful with the blue color you have snapped the pictures with!
That’s beautiful! Love the eyelets in there. Great colors.
Gorgeous!! I love STR yarn, esp. that color.
I need a blocking board; where did you get yours? Also, come over to my place and pick up an award!
