Shawl Crazy

I'm in stashbusting mood at the moment and what better way to use it up than by knitting shawls . . . and shawls . . . and did I mention shawls?

The first one is the Six Petal Half Circle Shawl for which I used 5 skeins of wine coloured Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino from a lot I bought in the John Lewis sale at half price a few years ago.

Next, is a Forest Canopy Shawl

I used a skein of Handmaiden Seasilk in Lily Pond colourway for this which I've had in stash since my 2007 Blogiversary competition when I treated myself as well as the winner!

Last but not least, shawlwise, is the start of Sharon Winsauer's Dragonfly in jade coloured Fiddlesticks Zephyr laceweight.

I'm almost half way through the border now on this one.

Just to prove that I do knit other stuff, too, here's a cocoon stitch washcloth in Rowan Handknit Cotton.

This is a charity knit to send to Julie aka Fibers who is collecting them for the Native Elders
