63 - All The Shawls

It’s good to be back!  Thank you for your patience!  

Pattern Release

My Only Goal Is Just To Be Shawl, inspired by the musical Rent.  Rent came out when I was 15 and had a huge influence on me.  It taught me the value of not just surviving but of truly living even through the most difficult times.  Few of us control where our life takes us. Indeed, the threads of our lives often go in unexpected directions – ups and downs, maybe even sideways or along an unexpected diagonal. Inspired by lyrics from the song “No Day But Today” from the musical Rent, this shawl lets you show your story. The shawl is knit in the main color first using an easy-to-memorize lace pattern, then the thread of your life is wound through the lace in a contrasting color, showing your story.

New shawl, doesn’t have a name yet, inspired by the fog rolling in off the ocean in my grandmother’s village.  It’s a 6-mile long thin peninsula, so the fog there is EPIC

New shawl pattern, based on being out in the open ocean. 

Another Rent shawl, this one incorporating cables and garter stitch.

Hitchhiker Shawl by Martina Behm.  This is my travel knitting for when we go somewhere and I’m not sure they’ll allow knitting needles.  I use detachable wooden tips, which are far less scary than my normal steel-tipped Karbonz needles lol
