Not Knitting Cardigans

Because I'm not knitting any cardigans at the moment, I seem to be getting through my works-in-progress nice and quickly.  What a good feeling!

This week I have cast on for another shawl.  I so loved knitting the ones for my Mum and for Eve that I thought I would make one for myself.

I'm about a quarter of the way through and it's going well.

The pattern is called Ashton Shawlette and it's by Dee O'Keefe - a lovely freebie, my favourite kind of pattern.

The pattern is made up of little leaflets - it'll look a whole lot better when it's blocked!

Here's the pattern picture so you can see what I'm aiming for - isn't it gorgeous.

The photos make my shawl look blue, but it is a dark grey yarn with bits of black in it.  The colourway is anthracite.

I'll try and get a truer colour picture when it's finished. Hopefully it won't be long.  See you next time.


  1. Such beauty, I am in awe of such a delightful shawl. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  2. I'm making a cotton jumper with a very similar lace pattern to the last part of the shawl. I can't believe it isn't blue - just like that dress that has caused all the controversy.

  3. The pattern looks like a pretty make, looking forward to seeing the completed project. x
