Darlene and I have been experiencing knitting Spring Fever! We both have major cases of Startitis! And we have several partly done projects to prove it! But we are both really enjoying our latest start.
While we were starting all these projects Darlene mentioned this cool shawl that she has always wanted to knit – Jasper Lace – by Keiran Folley. This shawl has a very unique appearance and it basically comes from just 2 stitch patterns that are repeated across the shawl. I call it Feather and Fan Stitch on Steroids! It has a straight on stole shape and the stitches are moved around through the use of “Stacked Decreases” This is a technique pioneered by Xandy Peters. Her FoxPaws pattern is a classic.
We were wondering if you would like to join us in our trip down the Spring rabbit hole with a new project. We were thinking a stole – either the one we are trying out or something else. We have a list of possibilities below. Some patterns are free, some are pay-for. There are a few crochet ones as well!
No hard rules – just a fun knit. We will start a Facebook group and a Rav thread as well so that we can all play together and share in the fun! Got any suggestions for a stole we haven’t thought of – post in the facebook group or in the Rav thread. Already got a stole on the go – it works too! Got a scarf started – well it is just a skinny stole!
We will have our PickKnit this August and we can all show up in our completed shawls, or not :D.
Right now I am imagining myself at the beach or in the park knitting away the stole moving gently in the cool breeze as I while away the summer. Well maybe on the weekends at least – we all can dream, come and dream with us.
