Shawl knitting continued into well September this year. Having seen sister's shawl and a half, Baby needed one as well. (It should be noted that Baby is not a baby, but an almost 4 year old with a killer vocabulary and a temper to match, but I digress. She's my littlest, and shall always be Baby.)
Some yellow Lucy Neatby Celestial Merino came from my mom's stash, and was tossed to me in disgust in the form of a single, ill-fitting sock and a matching second ball. I've known that feeling, when a project goes south, and you want nothing more to do with the yarn. Ever. I made quick work of it, working the shawl and a half shape with Evelyn Clark's Shetland Triangle pattern. Baby is quite thrilled with it.
And another Evelyn design, this one for a grownup. It's the Sand Dollar shawl from the book "Knitting Lace Triangles", worked in a single skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Seduction. I love the sheen and strength from the Tencel in it.
I'm ever so grateful to Evelyn Clark, for teaching me to put holes in my knitting!
