Shawl startitis

It is cold outside and the colours begin to fade and I have to knit warm shawls. Maybe one can not have enough scarfs and shawls but I am not sure I will wear all the scarfs and shawls in this house. But I love how they are constructed and how they become beautiful butterflys from just little catterpillars of yarn. I´m slow in knitting these days as Felix is becoming more and more mobile but it is mostly the process of seeing the shawl growing that I enjoy so much. No need to hurry.

It is so beautiful to see how the Noro colours appear and harmonic flow in each other. I love it.

Pattern: Eva Shawl (free crochet pattern from milobo)
Hook: 4.5mm
Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock

The Malabrigo Lace yarn is wonderful soft and the colour is a dusty and soft rosa. Very lovely and nice to knit. This shawl is only knitted for about 2 rows a day and the other time only looked at. I will not need it efore spring I think. The knitted fabric is so soft and pretty.

Pattern: Shetland Triangle by Evelyn Clark (from Wrap Style)
Needles: 4mm
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Lace in Damask Rose

This one was love at the first sight when seeing the pattern! To get gauge I have to use the Malabrigo Lace 2 stranded and to knit with 6mm needles. It is pain for my hands but the pics of the finished scarf look really pretty so I will knit on (from time to time). The colour is kind of rusty orange and I like it a lot. I hope this scarf will be finished this winter.
Pattern: Peaks Island Hood by Ysolda
Needles: 6mm
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Lace (knitting with 2 strands)


  1. Schals kann man doch nie genug haben... und das Shetland Triangle ist wunderschoen. Irgendwann mal kauf ich mir die Anleitung und werd mich auch rantrauen. Wobei ich das ja sowieso bewundere, wieviel Du mit Felix stricken kannst, und sogar noch Mustercharts :-)

  2. That hood is so pretty; It'll look great in that color, too.
