A Green Suede Shawlette
All I had to do was touch Carol's suede shawl last week and I knew what I was finally going to do with the green suede in my stash.....The pattern is a modified Reclamation scarf. When Pam left a comment on the contest blog about Reclamation scarves, I was intrigued. After a few moments I realized it is basically what I am knitting anyhow. So basically, this means I invented the same pattern as someone else without knowing what I was making up.
You'd think that would give my confidence a big boost. Well, hee hee. It did. I thought, well, finally I am doing something that could have been a real pattern, because it ALREADY is! Validation....a great thing. My knitting confidence is never high, folks.
I absolutely depend on a perfectly written pattern or I am paralyzed and give up. This really narrows one's knit ups.
So soft suede shawlette it is. If I recall, Katherine you sent me this yarn in a acrylic or nothing swap way back. I love how soft it is. I know many people have not liked this yarn, but in this circumstance it is perfect.
You only have a few hours left before it is June 2 and I announce the little shawl pin winner.
I have so many great summer recipes, reads and knit ideas from you all. Just in time...the summer bats are back at dusk....it is really summer in my yarn garden.
I WOULD LOVE YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT>
