I am teaching a Lace Shawl Class next week & the pattern that I am using for the class is the Cottage Garden Shawl, my 1st triangle shawl design.
I have knitted this pattern many times but when I started to look for a sample for my class, I could not find one. I had given away all those shawls that I have knitted. I can't believe that I don't have one shawl to show.
So, I had to knit one & I had to do it fast. Went through my stash & found a ball of Jawoll Magic. I love the colors of this yarn .......
I was a little worried when I started knitting that the yarn will be too variegated for lace but it turned out well.
I think this is my 4th Cottage Garden Shawl but I still enjoyed knitting this pattern and it's a simple pattern but with many variations. It will be a great pattern for lace beginners and I hope the 6 ladies who signed up for the class will enjoy knitting this shawl as much as I did.
I also finished a cowl - Cone of the Banksia, for my dear friend, Helen.
This cowl is knitted with Zen Yarn Garden's Cashsilk Fingering yarn, a gorgeous blend of cashmere & silk. It feels so soft & nice around the neck & I hope the cowl will keep Helen warm.
