This week I looked through my shawl projects. I thoguth I might choose a Hazel Carter pattern, as I've knitted and enjoyed several of her patterns, but turns out only one is on ravelry or the blog! So which to choose now then? Currently I prefer (when I eventually get around to knitting more) plainer shawls, possibly with subtle colour stripes, rather than full on lace shawls, though I have done my fair share over the years.
I've chosen Textured Shawl, which is more of a recipe than an out and out pattern. A imple pattern, easy enough to have as carry along knitting, and although it's not as fancy as a lace ashawl I enjoyed the knitting and the wearing and the look of this simple shawl.
Coincidentally I started this on October 22nd 2010! The yarn is Old Maiden Aunt, Alpaca/Silk sport-dk weight. A pleasure to knit with and it goes so well with this pattern, in this shade, Midnight.
