Since I'm almost done with my son's hat I just had to start another knitting project.
This is a very easy and good project to bring with you everywhere you go. It's small and portable and the pattern is so very easy you don't need to think while you are knitting... well... you are still going to think, but only good thoughts... and your mind can wonder to the meditating place where the knitting starts to work for your benefit... aaahhhhhhh!!!
This is of one of Stephen West patterns and you can find it on ravelry by westknits. or go to www.westknits.com He has many, many wonderful patterns and I have made a few of them.
This one is the boneyard shawl. He has GREAT books and I would recommend every single one of them...He is a very talented knitter who does an excellent job with color combination...
Here is a sneak pick at the one I'm just starting...
I'm using a sock yarn, so it's a thinner yarn than the one recommended in the pattern and I'm of course using smaller (size US 3) needles, however, this pattern is very versatile and you can use different kinds of yarn... I have just started and I already like it... what do you think???
I have also made the creekbed scarf of his collection and can see myself making so many more of his patterns.
Here it is...
I made mine a little different as I didn't change colors as he did, but used a Madelinetosh variegated sock yarn in the center and a solid for the accent.
It turned out so beautiful... I made it for myself in February to celebrate my 50th birthday!!! :)
I love how he emphasizes attention to details and how the color variations just bring your eyes to where he wants you to look.
Anyways... just wanted to show you a little preview of my new project and to take a little time to also mention one of my many favorite knitting artist.
Thanks for stopping by...
Hope to see you soon again...Tchau:)
