Thanks for all the comments on the Pinwheel Sweater. Guess what? I haven’t tried it on since I finished it.
This often happens when I complete a sweater. Once it is knit, I lose interest in it. Part of the problem is that for the past couple of years my internal thermostat has been completely wacky, so wearing sweaters is impossible. I still like to knit ‘em, just can’t wear them right now. Hopefully that will change sometime. Soon, I hope.
That’s one reason why I like knitting non-sweater items — lace and socks? Those I can wear.
Speaking of lace . . .
That’s my current work in progress. It’s Evelyn Clark’s Angel Lace Shawl.
The pattern is available for purchase as a leaflet published by Fiber Trends. I bought mine from elann.com.
The yarn is pure luxury — Handmaiden 2-ply Cashmere. I’m knitting it on a US 6 needle. It’s as light as a feather and exquisitely soft.
If you look at the lace from the wrong side, you just see little circles formed by the lace pattern.
But on the right side you can see that the decreases form little angel wings. Cool huh?
