Come join me for a knit along! I’m hosting the July knit-along on Craftsy. We’re making the shawl that you see in these pics – my new Blue Angel Shawl.
This project will teach you some fun new skills and explain some things that you may have been doing in your knitting for years, but maybe haven’t really understood why. The workshop includes the pattern, along with in-depth instructions and high quality close-up photos of each step. Craftsy will send you one beautiful skein of Cascade Heritage yarn in Como Blue to complete the project. Plus, I will be responding to questions and providing help along the way.
With my guidance, knitters intermediate and above will be able to participate in and enjoy the workshop. Won’t you join the fun? Grab a tall iced tea, your favorite patio chair, and knit along with me! Click here to join!
Note: this is not a video class, it’s a photo-based knit-along.
I finished this shawl not too long ago. I like it. Jenn took this photo of me the other day at work. the color of the wall is just amazing.
I used two techniques that I hadn’t tried before. I combined two lace patterns in the same project, without making them flow into each other…just separated them into sections. I also Knit with Beads in the last few rows.
I absolutely LOVE the yarn! It’s Bijou Basin Tibetan Dream…a gorgeously soft, warm, and lofty yak yarn. I’ve swatched Bijou yarns before (thanks to my great friend Marly Bird, who gave me a few samples.)
Here it is blocking:
And before blocking, I love this texture! AND…check out the beads!!
I caught the knitting with beads bug when Laura Nelkin was in Denver filming her Knitting with Beads Craftsy class.
(Here we are together at TNNA, back when she was planning her FIRST Craftsy class!)
Woo Hoo! I just blocked my TGV. I used Anzula Squishy and US 5s. It’s so awesome! The pattern is really simple, and great for those nights when I’m just awake enough for an episode or two of a favorite show on Netflix, but not up for anything too complex.
The yarn is a gorgeous shade of orange. It’s so soft and squishy, and feels great. I wore it on Saturday with a gray tunic & black leggings. It was the perfect pop.
Mazie helped me take my pics, and found some flowers! She’s at such a fun age…so smart and really trying to be helpful. She’s amazing!
Here’s the scarf before blocking. It’s got a totally different shape than after. Look at how squishy that Squishy is!!
