Mary D and Debbie are relatively new knitters in my knitting group. They bought the Elegantly Simple Triangular Shawl pattern by Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer and are having a good time doing it. At first they both thought the pattern was beyond them, but have discovered that they CAN do it! I'm proud of them! I want to brag about them -- they have learned they CAN knit lace!
Debbie is knitting hers out of Webs Barrington Mohair -- the rust isn't on this page, but the yarn is magnificent! Doesn't it look good? We'll block it sternly, and the lace pattern will really sing! She wants to make the smaller shawl at this point, she doesn't want to stop at the scarf.
Mary D is using Heritage Yarns Cloud 9 in Black and Grey in a Rainbow World. She hasn't stated how big she is going to make it -- she gets distracted by her other projects. The marking rings are NOT knit in, but got caught by her lifeline. When she takes that out, they will drop off. I've done THAT!
