not much knitting last night – but above is the latest of the Flower Basket shawl – i am at the “ok, how much more of this!” stage .
can’t decide if i have enough repeats – i have about 12–13 (need to recount) and am not sure how much longer i should make it – its out of the Elann Baby Cashmere yarn – the gauge is 28 st/4 inches 3.25 mm (US 3) – but i am using US 6 and of course its lace so it will be blocked. Elann calls it “Fingering gauge” . The confusion of the knitting weight terms!
Anyone have any idea as to how much this may stretch? or any experience with the blocking?
I want a fairly large shawl… so i can wrap it around to keep me warm during the cold winter months.
and i am itching to start something new… will have to poke around my stash and see what’s there (still need to re-inventory a casualty of getting the garden put in this summer – i havent reinventoried since i moved last august).
i really want to make an aran cardigan and a fair isle cardigan for this fall/winter. will have to sufing in my magazines/patterns stock.
and here is one of my new favorite weather toys
its a Weather Stick. i love it!
