Over the past few years, I’ve designed socks, cowls and fair isle hats. One thing that has been on my “bucket” list of things to do someday was to design an asymmetrical shawl. I started this in August 2016, when I was traveling to and from the Stitches Midwest conference and I finally finished it last week. It uses two skeins of sock yarn in contrasting colors.
I was very good to take notes and a stitch count every row. Yes, it was somewhat tedious but I’m really glad that I did because it’s making the actual writing of the pattern much easier.
Here are some photos.
I am in the process of actually writing the pattern and hope to be able to have it ready to post for test knitters on Ravelry’s Free Pattern Testers forum. If you’re interested and are a Ravelry member, then contact me at the top of this site or private message me on Ravelry (username is mom2bsa) and I’ll contact you when it’s ready for test knitting.
i wanted to share my next project with you. It is another pair of my latest design, Split Butterflies. I gave my first pair away to my best friend, Michele, so I needed to have a pair to keep for me. The yarn I am using is Malabrigo in the “Color of Love”.
I’m a Michigander who loves to knit and has recently started publishing designs at Ravelry.com. I find knitting to be a great relaxation and find myself loosing track of time while knitting. It is a passion of mine.
