|Malabrigo Lace in Azul Profundo in my basket|
Knitters are under pressure: buying yarns, starting projects. There are two big facts about knitting: the more you knit, the more you want to knit and the more yarn you stashed, the more you want to stash...
Since I have finished my first shawl (Holden Shawlette from Mindy Wilkes) I would like to start the next one. This time I am knitting something more challanging: something with short rows, laces, picots and whatever comes.... After spending hours on Ravelry browsing shawl patterns, I needed to admit, that big, romantic, lacy triangle-shaped shawls are not for me. My style is more casual, I am wearing simple shapes, plain colors spicing up with a few chic-girly details. So a halfcircle-shape with less lace would fit more to my everyday outfit.
I chosed a design from Joji Locatelli who has got an absolute delicate style. I found in the April Shawl everything I had been searching for: soft laces, eyelets, short rows,and beads. It's difficulty rate is medium, which is great.
I am on the 33th row now. I need to hurry, would like to complete it until our vacation!
