I can't say enough about how much I adore all things Kelbourne. The yarns, the patterns and most importantly the people. It's fun for me to make something that is born out of awesome.
I made this shawl during my jaunt up to the ADK over NYE. My husband and I rented a cabin for the third year in a row with a few of our closest friends. It was 3 days filled with good food, good drink and a ton of knitting. With all that, a crackling fire, and a view of a serene frozen lake, what more can you ask for?
Pattern: Springtime Bandit
Yarn: Canopy Fingering, 3 balls
Needles: US 7
How about a gorgeous knitted shawl? I did 8 repeats of the main body pattern with the hope that two balls of the Canopy Fingering would be enough. Yea, no. I ran out of the 2nd ball just a mere 3 rows to go. Thankfully I had a 3rd ball to use but if you only have two, 7 repeats is the way to go if using the Canopy Fingering.
Thanks to Trish for inspiring me to make this shawl. It looks like 2011 is gonna be a great knit year.
