Wool & Company Every Other Month Club: Karen Shawl

Kelly and I did a knit-a-long between us, along with other knitters at Wool & Company. This time the pattern was the Karen Shawl by Amy Stinson aka Indigirl. This was my first shawl and it was challenging. Seriously, the cast-on sent me into a tail spin. But I adjusted and ended up with this. The colors in the picture are slightly off: think less orange, more purple.

Unfortunately, this has sparked an incredible interest in lace knitting. I can’t wait to do more!

Knitting Binge

I have been on a knitting binge! I still have two scarves to photograph. But here is a sock I just finished. It was done toe-up on a 40″ circular needle. I used the foot and heel pattern from the SockCalc app on my IPad. I modified the cuff pattern from Wendy D. Johnson’s Feather and Fan socks. Here are the details of my project on Ravelry. I’m user QusieSusie, if you’re interested in being my friend!
