Show and Tell Friday

It seems I am making a lot of shawls.  Is this my instinct telling me we are in for a cold, cold winter?  (Remember, I live in Southeastern Arizona.  How cold can it get?) Well, whatever the temp is, I’ll be toasty. By the way, it was 92 today.Image

I’ve made two of these.  The first one was for my mom for Mothers Day.  I liked it so much I made another for myself.  The patten is from Knitting Fever and I used Marks & Kattens Fame trend “Party” yarn.    Here’s a close up.Image

Next I tried the same pattern (do you see a trend here) using Knitting Fever Painted Desert yarn.ImageImage

And finally one a little larger with some Peruvian Alpaca that I had bought for weaving but didn’t work in the loom.  ImageImage

My next project, not counting the the five looms I have going, will be using some free alpaca batts that I’m carding together. I am planning a rustic barn tapestry.  Here’s the beginning of the yarn.Image

See ya!

    The shawls are beautiful and each looks completely different thanks to the yarns you used. If SE AZ is anything like the Inland Empire area of SoCal, the winter early mornings, late afternoons and evenings will definitely be cool enough for a shawl…or two…or three 🙂

      You know how it goes with a pattern you like, I can see several more shawls on the needles using really neat yarns. I’m ready for cooler temps. It’s really hot and sticky!
