A Shawl, a Shawl and a Bunch of Other Stuff

I just finished binding off my shawl. It's in the "looks like a wadded up Kleenex because it hasn't been blocked" phase.

I had my camera with me at work today and snapped a picture of the new shawl shop model I started based on Evelyn's workshop last weekend.

Sorry, it's right side down.
A little more on Evelyn Clark's new book. I think it will be more of a booklet. It will be published by FiberTrends and I'm visualizing a format similar to their magic loop book. The book provides instructions to make a lace shawl in multiple sizes and gauges using four lace patterns that you can mix and match. The sample I'm making for the shop is in Artyarns Silk Rhapsody. It is terribly yummy.

Here's a Ruffle Skirt I knit from Barefoot Knits in Ty-Dy.

Uber-cute, if I do say so myself.

There's also a Mountain Colors seafoam lace stole that I have been dragging my feet on.

It's easy but sooooo boring to knit. And on huge needles. And I've knit one before.

There's also this cute cardigan from Natural Knits for Babies and Moms knit in O-Wool.

This yarn is seriously nice stuff. It's solid and sturdy but not harsh or itchy. It comes in some great colors too. I keep thinking I'll knit myself another Rogue in it someday.
