Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny at Small Things again this week for the Yarn Along. It seems I’ve had knitting fever the past week or so! I’ve been frantically trying to finish Lynden’s hoodie, knitting up a pair of warm woolen work socks for a friend, and squeezing in a few rows each night on this project:

It’s one of the only projects I’ve worked on for myself. I started way back in June, and as you can see, I haven’t had many opportunities to make it grow. Now that Lynden’s hoodie is almost complete and the holiday madness is over, I’m determined that this project is going to take priority.

It’s the Bat Shawl! I’m using my own handspun yarn. It’s a beautiful naturally-coloured steely grey wool from New Zealand that I spun a year or so ago, about sock weight.

The lace pattern is hard to see in these low-quality photos taken from my phone, but it’s coming out beautifully and the bats will be glorious when the shawl is finished and blocked.

I love bats! I can’t wait to get this shawl finished and wrap it around my shoulders.

What are you working on right now, dear readers?

  1. Lovely! Shawls are so pretty and versatile.
    I’m working on a Teesha Moore inspired scrap journal/memory book thing. A place to assemble all those bits and bob doodads and doohickeys that don’t live anywhere specific but are too precious to just do away with. It’s coming along…

  2. Ohh…. love the bat motif! Much fancier than the simple 4-row lace repeat design I’m working on, but I figured I’d start out with something simple. One of these days though, I vow to knit something with your yarn!
