Shawl Season All Season

Hello my merry crafting friends! HalesBee is back this weekend with some dream knitting, and this time it’s all about the shawls! I do love knitting shawls, partly because there are so many different construction methods and so many opportunities to play with color. This week I have been working on my Touchstone Shawl by Laura Aylor, available on Ravelry.

Touchstone Shawl knit with my own hand dyed yarn. Colors shown are Coffee and Pie Oh My! and Remnants.

Touchstone is a simple shawl pattern, with just enough changes in stitch pattern to keep me interested, but not so complicated that I can’t listen to my favorite podcasts. I am using my own hand dyed yarns, available in my Etsy shop, HalesBee Handmade. This shawl is in a DK weight, so it may be a bit heavy for the warm spring weather here in NC. Though, I must say there are times I feel the need for a bit of air conditioning protection, so I’m excited to have this off the needles at the ready!

To add to my dream shawl knitting, today I received my February Artisan Crate delivery from KnitCrate! The yarn and patterns are from Toby Roxane Designs. The yarns are a light sport weight, super gorgeous and soft! The patterns are for a simple garter stitch triangular shawl, and a triangular shawl with lace work for intermediate knitters.

The last bit of dream shawl knitting I have is a kit I purchased from Craftsy for the Serenity Now Shawl. The kit comes with Craftsy’sΒ Cloudborn Merino Superwash Sock Twist, one full skein and a set of five mini skeins. The kit I chose is the Superb Starling mini set and a full skein of Grey Heather.

As they often do, Craftsy had a sale going at the time I bought the kit. So I chose a second Cloudborn skein, Oatmeal Heather, that I may use instead of the Grey Heather. Feel free to comment if you have an opinion on which one goes best with the mini kit!

I have been busy dying self striping yarn for my shop, so for now most of my knitting is dream knitting. I also am still desperately trying to finish mom’s Worsted Boxy so I can do some selfish knitting. Hopefully you will have an update on these fun projects soon!
