Golden Rainbow Shawl and News

It’s finished! Made from Sirdar Divine yarn (colourway 062), the asymmetric shawl I was busy with is now finished. This is the end result:

It’s based on another scarf pattern that includes some lace knitting inserts, but I realised only after working with the Divine yarn for a bit that the lace pattern won’t work. Instead, I kept on only increasing a stitch every two rows. I’m very happy with how it turned out as well, but am going to knit another one in another yarn that includes the lace parts.

I’ve now started on my scarf for the Mandela Day challenge for 2018. I’m using Elle Baby DK in the Apricot colourway and a 3.5mm hook. The stitch is called the Elizabeth stitch. As with my other charity makes, I go for something practical but beautiful. Who says things you receive through charity shouldn’t be beautifully made?

Craftsy is addictive. That is all I can say. I’m learning some new stitches and colour changes, and am making a sampler scarf for the one class. Using: Elle Charity DK in Fuchsia and School Grey.
