Confessions of a Shawlaholic. Part I.

It all started pretty innocent. After being registered on Ravelry for less then half a year, I finally started noticing all the beautiful shawls people have knitted. I wanted to try to make one too, but had no idea how do you knit one. For my first triangular shawl I have chosen this simple garter stitch shawl by Kate Gagnon Osborn.
I thought it would be a perfect project to understand the construction of topdown shawl. You can find more details on this project on Ravelry.

I really loved that little kerchif and the addiction to shawl knitting have began ;-))) 
Next came Ulmus by Kirsten Kapur This is probably the shawl I have been wearing the most so far. More on this project on Ravelry.


Then I knitted a little scarf/shawl called Saroyan by Liz Abinante. It turned out to be very wearable little scarf and easy to knit. More on this project on Ravelry.
My first shawl from a really thin 2 ply yarn, kidsilk actually, came out of my fascination with the lace pattern that I saw used in a top in one of Ravelry patterns and just wanted to use. So, I came up with idea of this stole. Thinking back I should have CO with provisional CO in the middle and knit in both directions, so the edge looks the same on both sides. Instead I just CO and knitted. I love this shawl. I have gifted it to my mom last weekend :-))) I knew that she liked it a lot ;-))) The shawl was named Frost and more pictures can be found on Ravelry.




To be continued............... :-)))))
