Luna Moth complete

Well I actually finished my shawl a month ago I've just been crazy busy and haven't had the time to post about it. It knit up wonderfully and the Callista yarn is really nice and comfy to wear as well.

Here's a picture of the detail after blocking.

And here is a picture of me wearing it at my cousin's wedding.

There are more pictures on my blog and all of the yarny details are up on Ravelry (my username is grateblue2).
I would absolutely recommend this shawl pattern to anyone, it was so quick to knit up!

I'm back!

Hi all,

I am back from my vacation and as always work has been crazy. My aunt loved the shawl and she cried when we visited her in Washington. I am now working on two shawls at the present time. First one is from the Heirloom Series from Sharon Miller called the Grey Shawl (HAP), I haven't take any pictures as it is just a small triangle right now. I am using KnitPicks bare lace yarn which is a very pretty cream color, 100% wool for the center which will be a diamond. The borders are the all Shale design with varying degrees of grays.

The other shawl that I am working is the Peddler's Wool shawl from Folk Shawls (Cheryl Oberle), in which I am using a hand-dyed alpaca lace yarn from a gal from Oregon who I had met on line. It is so soft. The main part (top) is a color she calls Autumn, which is yellows, oranges, greens, and brown; very pretty. For the lacer part, I am going to use same kind of yarn, but in a copper color. Since both shawls are in the beginning stage and just garter stitch, I will wait a little while before I take any pictures.

Until next time,

Linda E.
