I love to go to my knitting group. We're a chatty bunch of women. This means you have to take a project you don't have to count all the time with you.
Those last weeks I've been shawl knitting. A striped triangular shawlette and probably the first larger Christmas present to be finished. I used some soft hand dyed fingering weight yarn from Quo Vadis to make it: it's very soft and completely animal friendly.
You can get the pattern from Ravelry: Colovaria Shawl and there's even a 20% discount until July 21, enjoy!
The body is made of stockinette and garter stitch...
... the border with elongated garter stitch, a very easy technique detailed in the pattern.
And now I have some good news for you: my "WIPs stash" is down to 1 project (this crochet skirt I hesitated about how to make it look like)... I promise I'll finish it before casting on something new, I made good progress on it lately.
