Little Raava.

Raava hat, my 1st project for GAl2015 is done. Love the little hat. My son said the hat needs pom-pom, but I like the lace pattern in the crown and do not want to cover it. Will see what my sister wants for her daughter’s hat :-) I will see my niece on Thanksgiving, so will see if she cooperates for some pics :) 
  More on the project is here:
The GAL2015 pattern sale is going on until the end of this Friday.

Happy Knitting and Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

Bridal Palessie Shawl.

Palessie shawl knitted in ivory silk yarn by ColourMart:
It only took 1.5 years for me to photograph this shawl ;-) I even  had to re-block the shawl since it has been so long since I made it.
I love this shawl. The silk is gorgeous. A little splitty, but not too much. The drape and the shine of the yarn are amazing.  I think it would make a perfect bridal shawl for someone or I just will wear it for special occasions in the summer :-)

Happy knitting,

Rainbow Weave

My 3rd Woven shawl and I love it :-)
I love how the colors show when the shawl is draped around the neck. A little peekaboo of greens and yellows and a pale lavender border. My Woven shawls are my most worn shawls. This is one is probably not the last. They take a little longer to make, but they are so highly wearable.
Also, very happy to use up leftovers from 9!!! other projects :-) 

Happy knitting,

Pattern update: Woven and Bubblemania.

I am in the process of updating my older patterns to reflect my current pattern layout format. 
Two pattern that have been recently updated are Woven and Bubblemania.
Woven pattern now  includes both written and charted instructions.

I also started working on my 3rd Woven shawl from leftover yarn I have accumulated form all those shawl projects :-)  I used just 3 color groups and light fingering to sport weight yarns. Most of the yarn used is multi ply, but there are couple single ply yarns used in the very beginning of the shawl. I love how it is coming out and also love that I am using up all these yarn that otherwise would just sit there.

Bubblemania pattern update includes abbreviation table and finished measurements that were not in the original pattern file.

Last, but not least, please check out these gorgeous Bubblemania scarves made by Daria (djaya on Ravelry) from Aade Lõng Artistic 8/1:
