Pattern: Clementine Shawlette (Interweave Knits Winter 2007)
Needles: Clover Bamboo straights US 4
Yarn: KnitPicks Shine Sport in River, 4 skeins at 110yds/50gr each
As we all know I was fascinated with this shawlette. I figured it'd be a good way to get into shawl making, and I was right. It only took me so long to do 'cause of studio work and life getting in the way. I love it! It's super comfy. PS - that is me at my White Rose Formal. Fancy fancy!
Needles: Clover Bamboo straights US 8
Yarn: Crystal Palace Yarns Mikado Ribbon, less than a whole skein (112 yds/50gr)
Modifications: I quickly grew tired of making this thing. I mean, it's really pretty and all, but something about it... I only made it about 24" long instead of the recommended 49". I don't want to use it as a scarf, just a headwrap. I guess it's some mindless knitting to do when bored. It has a tendency to roll at the edges, perhaps because I have not blocked it. Meh.
