Now that I have these new "friends", I've put one to good use modeling the Jane Thornley inspired shawl that I made a few weeks ago. I used a different yarn for almost every row, some wool, some handspun by me, some fun fur, etc, etc... It was just knit stitch on large needles-I cast on 110 stitches-and knit a couple rows of each yarn. There are a few rows of the Feather and Fan stitch which turns out really cool. I hope to make another one but in all shades of grey. These are so fun and easy. I'm working out ideas for scarves like this, too. I'm not a very accomplished knitter, so this is a big deal for me, and I guess I'm patting myself on the back a bit.


  1. You have some very nice new friends and they did a great job showing off your beautiful shawl.

  2. Beautiful! I want to make one-or you could make one for me ;o)-----Carolyn
