Shawls galore

I started another shawl just before the weekend. I couldn't wait to knit some of the lovely yarn I bought at Knit Nation, so why not?! This makes three shawls on the go at the moment - all in middling stages.

First is Jaali by Kitman Figueroa - this is the newer start in Old Maiden Aunt Last Night's Red Dress. It's all bunched up at the moment and hard to see but it's going to be very stylish.


Then there's the Christchurch Shawl by Bristol Ivy. I bought the pattern for this after the big Christchurch earthquake in February - proceeds went towards the relief fund. It's knitted in Dye for Yarn Tussah silk in Worn Jeans. Again it's a bit bunched up as it's getting big now.


The last is Legolas by Susan Pandorf - one of her Lord of the Rings patterns. This one is in Old Maiden Aunt Bitterbug. The pattern is a little like the Christchurch shawl - leaves and spines - but it will be smaller and cosier.


I'll probably end up finishing all three around the same time and will suddenly have a surfeit of shawls!

  3. Beautiful! With the last night's red dress, now that you are seeing how it knits, is it more the deep red colours or does it come out with pinks like I was afraid it might? Either way, looks gorgeous.

    And these pics make me query my reasons for decided on no new knitting starts until I finish that cable cardy. But I must be good... Bummer.
