Extraordinary Swirl Shawls

Melody yarn and Swirl Shawls

Carole brought her swirl shawls she completed recently into the shop and they are so excellent I wanted to share her accomplishments. Keep in mind that each is knitted with a single colorway of Melody yarn.

Carole changed the ends on the shawl:

Very attractive finish to the shawl. Love these shawls!

Here’s the Mitt

What do you think? Does the celtic knot show up very much in the DK wt Felted Tweed?

Well, actually looking at the photo, I think it does. but in real life not so much.

Shirl’s Mittlets in Progress

Posted by Caroline Hershey

Working on the fingerless mittens in Rowan Felted Tweed.

Several selected this yarn for their class projects. I’ve worked the first mitten almost to the bind off point. Love the yarn but disappointed with the color I guess. I picked a light shade thinking the celtic knot on the back of the hand would show up well but it doesn’t really. Maybe after I block it. Will post a photo in the next blog so you can tell me what you think.

Have you gotten all your shopping done? My lists are still growing. I never was one to get it done over the summer and early fall. It turns into a shop until I drop day or two, many orders on line, and then Christmas is here. Between knitting samples for the shop and the various retreats we have, there hasn’t been anytime this fall to knit gifts. Of course there are several baby blankets in the works and Christmas stockings that have a definite deadline. :) I’m looking forward to some down time to concentrate on these and get a few more projects completed. What are you working on? Are your gifts all finished and ready to send on their way?

Fern Lace Cowl in Rowan Lima

Posted by Caroline Hershey

Finished the cowl that I started before Thanksgiving with the Rowan Lima and the Fern lace cowl pattern. The photo doesn’t do it justice. The Lima is incredibly soft and warm as you would expect an alpaca yarn to be.
