Today I’ve been at home because my asthma is bad. Mostly I’ve read or done some knitting. Or had a little snooze! I do hate being asthmatic.
Anyway…I had a craving to knit shawls while grinding out the Thank God It’s Done Blanket. When I made my Christmas crafting list I decided I wanted to make shawls for people for Christmas. (And maybe one for me 😉).
The ones I want to make are:
Anything Martina Behm has ever designed.
Nymphalidea by Melinda VerMeer.
Lancet Shawl and Traveling Woman by Liz Abinante. I love her designs.
Scarab Shawl & Irulan by Barbara Benson. Yes you guessed it I love all of her designs as well.
Reverse Psychology by Mindy Ross.
There are SO many fabulous ones to choose from. I only haven’t included one from one of my favourite designers, Stephen West, because they need to be knit on circular needles and having knit for the first time in six weeks today, I know my wrist isn’t up to it yet.
So what did I do today apart from feel unwell? Well I cast on Hitchhiker by Martina Behm last night.
I’m using Schoppelwolle Laceball held together with silver Kidsilk Haze.
Aren’t the colours glorious!
And by this evening I’d done this.
