A Little Knitting For Myself

Last night, I started knitting a shawl for myself. My Boneyard Shawl is great, but I want some variety! I am using two skeins of hand spun that I purchased at Art In The Park this past summer.
I wound them, by hand, in balls roughly the size of grape fruits. The purple is such a lovely colour, and it will be striped with the creamy natural.
I'm doing a basic triangle shawl from the centre out, in stockinette stitch. Nothing too fancy. I tried to find a pattern to use, but nothing fit my criteria. I needed something that is mindless enough to do while reading blogs, striped/colour working to use both of these skeins, and roughly worsted weight.
I will post progress photos as the shawl grows.
Stay tuned!


  1. Have fun with your shawl! It's fun to make items for yourself sometimes.

  2. pretty yarn! I can't wait to see the end result.
