My FO!

If you remember from my last post - FO means finished object. Well my WIP became my FO before I knew it and even before I took a picture of it as a WIP. Truth be told - I forgot to take a picture of it as a WIP.

Well, here it is my FO. It is the the lightest, most wonderful feeling shawl ever. It only took one skein of Sweaterkits 100% silk. The pattern - which is free when you purchase the yarn - is easy enough for a beginner. This is an  instant gratification project as it works up extremely quickly on 7 mm needles. In real life you can see more clearly the cute little picot edge which is done at the end with 4.5 mm needles. If shawls are not your "thing", it can be used to make a lovely dressy scarf.

I hope you notice the attractive shawl pin fastened to the shawl. This copper pin (and silver ones) are made by Sweaterkits. It is great that they are a Canadian company - actually from Ontario.

Why not treat yourself to a skein (or two) of this lovely hand dyed silk yarn to make a shawl for yourself or for "whoever". If you go back o to our October 14th post, you will see the "must have" colours. I will be ordering more colours soon, as I am sure this yarn is going to be very popular.

Have fun knitting and crocheting.

  1. Hi Diane, the shawl looks lovely! It's always great to see small gems that can be made from 1 or 2 skeins of yarn - I bought some Noro Silk Garden from you a while ago, and I love the short row scarf I knitted with that! Enjoy wearing your lovely wrap - those pin closures really add a terrific hip element to any garments - keep up the good work!
