Shadow: 3-Color Style

Remember last week when I said that Lazy Girl may not be fulfilling my garter stitch needs?  Yeah- I fixed that.

I CO for Shadow by Veera Valimaki out of the yarns from the Miss Babs Color Affection kit that I got at Rhinebeck 2012.

Shadow is made from 2 colors of yarn, but of course I can’t leave well enough alone.  I’m doing mine in three colors.

I knew after knitting a small portion of Color Affection that knitting it wasn’t for me (at least, not for now).  I love the stripes – really love the stripes – but I wasn’t enjoying the knitting.  I might go back to it some day.  But for now, I’m enjoying all this simple garter stitch, and even enjoyed planning out the addition of the third color.

And – no surprise – I love love love the colors.

More Shawl Patterns

shawls 2-17-13

I was seeing patterns this week through shawl-colored glasses.  Here are a few of my faves – including a free pattern offer.

  • Crystal Chandelier – LOVE the twisted stitches. It’s knit bottom up so you can choose how large to make it.
  • Wholehearted – free pattern until 2/20/13
  • No Boundaries – sideways garter stitch so you can use up all your yarn.

Happy knitting.  I’ll catch you all on the purl side.
