The Home Stretch

I am coming down the home stretch on my latest sideways shawl.

As you can see, I’ve got just a bit more knitting to do one this, then  . . . finito!

As soon as I finish, I plan on knitting it again . . . with a few modifications. Then I’ll offer both versions as one pattern.

The second shawl will also be knit from Tempted Yarns Luxe Grrl, in another colorway that Stacy custom-dyed for me:

Isn’t it pretty? I’m really looking forward to knitting it up.

Several of you have asked me about the pattern for the Bernadette shawl that I finished a little while back. I do plan on publishing the pattern — just got distracted by other things. 🙂

Right now I am distracted by Lucy pretending to be a muffin.


  1. Your latest sideways shawl is stunning. The new color is terrific too.

    On my 3rd Ruffles and ridges, have been waiting for Bernadette, and now the new sideways shawl. Love the sideways construction. Not to mention your Mystery KAL and Camp Loopy–need more hours in the day. 😉

  3. Love your patterns. I could just knit everything you need and I would never get everything done. Must be a slow knitter because you knit SOOOOOO fast! I love it. Never can wait until you get your current projects finished so I can see what they look like.

    Did have a questions though, what do you end up doing with all your shawls? Do you use them all or give them away?

  4. Muffin top!

  5. If you are not careful this will become the summer of shawls 😀 or the slanting summer of sideways shawls.

  6. Does Lucy like butter? And jam? She may be trying to trick you into giving you some….

  7. Giving HER some, even… I still need more coffee.

  8. Ooh, ruffles AND lace! Love your sideways shawls, look forward to the pattern for this one!

  9. These post is pretty interesting. I could just knit everything you need and I would never get everything done. Thanks that you’ve shared.
