Since today I am writing about shawls.. LOL.. Check these out!
Next year is the year of shawls for me. I will be making shawls for people that I love and care about. I decided this about a month ago, and I am now combing Ravelry to see what patterns I have purchased. I think that I have enough to do some really gorgeous shawls justice.
I love Dee’s designs on Ravelry, like this one: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/glenallen-shawl
I think I will make this one for my mom, in midnight blue or white.
I love that one so much, I just had to add it to my library. I looked at it, dreamt about it, and decided after many trips to gaze lovingly at it that I must have the pattern.
This Rose Trellis Shawl here:
I am going to make for my MIL so that it will be ready when she visits next September. Her favorite color is purple, and I have some beautiful handpainted lace yarn from Tanis Fiber Arts just waiting for my needles. I even purchased Signature circular needles to do these shawls!
Are you familiar with Tanis Fiber Arts? She is out of Canada, and she makes some gorgeous yarn! http://www.tanisfiberarts.com/
Have you heard about Signature needles? They have stiletto tips, middy tips, and blunt tips. All of the Signature needles that I have were made with the stiletto tips. They are PURRFECT for doing the stitches involved with lace knitting.

Anyway, I want to take the pattern below and increase it across to make a shawl for a friend of mine:
Lastly, this one is just gorgeous!
I hope one or more of these make you go OMG! I have to make that!:)
