Shawl Time

When one is in a knitting slump why not go for lace knitting?!?!?! I casted on for the Chinook Shawl the night before I left for Myrtle Beach. I tried to work on it during the car ride down, but didn't get very far with it. The yarn was very slippery, and the car felt every bump, so I only completed a few rows here and there.

However, once I was back home all I wanted to do was knit on it. As you can see from the picture, things have progressed very nicely. I am actually about 75% done. You hold the lace yarn double so it feels like knitting with fingering yarn.

The Chinook Shawl was a Knit Picks Kit that my parents gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago. The kit came in a few color combination's and I love all the pink in mine. I think this will block out to a very nice size. It will be a perfect summer addition!


  1. Surprise! This looks like an awesome plate of strawberry goodness. Enjoying this shot like a springtime bounty. Nice work so far.

  2. Oooh, lovely! The graduated pink tones are very nice. I feel about lace the way you feel about stranded knitting, NOT my comfort zone.
