Beautiful Shawl

Hi there dear friends
Can you believe that march is already upon us ???
I have been working hard and getting things ready for my husband's "special birthday" this month.
spring break will be here soon and although we don't have big plans we may scape and go to the beach for a couple of days ... bliss.
I have been working on the washcloths for my daughter, but my favorite project right now is my shawlette and a new KAL shawl I'm hoping to start this weekend.
One of my friends was making this one last time we met for knitnite and I just had to start it. When I looked at it it felt almost like a "knitted paint".
It is Leftie (for leftovers because you can use leftovers for the leafs if you wish) by Martina Behm. I just love it and it is not too hard to do. Once you get going with the leaves the garter stitch section goes really fast and garter stitch is so relaxing to me.    
So be prepared for a shower of pictures ...although I'm not done and it's not blocked yet.

I think now you got it how much I love this little shawllette.
But don't be fooled, I already have my eye set on another project.
I have been visiting Lori and her fantastic blog Lori Times Five for a while now. She has the most beautiful pictures and her trips are just inspiring to me. I absolutely loooove every project that she makes and cannot wait for her next post. So I decided to go look on her IG since she does not post as often as she post on IG (as all of us do) and for my delight now I get almost a daily dose of her pictures there.
She went on the most beautiful trip to the Shetlands with several talented knitters/designers and she loves to make shawls. Through her blog I have found Beatrice's blog and website, Thread and Ladle,  and I am going to try my first online KAL. Beatrice is also very, very talented and I absolutely fell in love with her blog and her designs.
The Liesellote Shawl.
 I'm going to the 2015 Yarn Crawl here in Portland, OR tomorrow with my friends and my most exciting mission is to find the yarn for this fantastic shawl,
Now I think it's time to go get dinner and go to bed early so I will have lots of energy for my adventure tomorrow. I look forward to this day every year and I'm so very excited.
Thank you for visiting me today ...I Hope you all have a great weekend and thank you for all the love you show me every day :)

    I wanted to thank you for the sweet visit to my blog the others day - your comments were such a joy to read. May you have a splendid day! Hugs and sunshine!

  20. The shawl is gorgeous. Pretty colors. Certainly doesn't look like an easy pattern, but all knitting seems hard to me. :) I have no doubt you had great fun at the yarn crawl. Love Lori's blog, too. She seems to post now more on IG as so many do. Much easier than a whole blog post. Enjoy Spring Break Tammy
