Since Denny clearly threw down the knitted gauntlet in an earlier comment and the recent barrage of cute baby knitting is making me feel a might bit creatively cramped I have decided to pick it up and run with it.
As with all challenges there are rules (Denny’s challenge, Denny’s rules):
There must be 7 shawls cast on.
There is no deadline (I personally like this rule)
Pretty stitch markers are a Must since such an undertaking will involve some serious KIPing.
There are apparently more rules but Denny has yet to let me in on them. I’m thinking she is making them up as she goes!
After a bit of searching and the discovery of three more shawls worth of yarn in the stash (go stash busting action!!!) I narrowed my choices down over two days and the confirmed list is as follows:
Lace Wings (started) Sea Silk on assorted needles
Kiri (started) Alchemy Haiku on 4.5 bamboo
Charlotte’s Web Mini Maiden
Icarus Shawl KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud
Shetland Triangle Suri Blue in Moss
Bird’s Eye Shawl Jaggerspun Zephyr hand dyed tangerine orange by me
Luna Moth Shawl Suri Blue in Peridot
Now I have to take stock of what needles I have and what changes (if any) need to be made to the assorted patterns so that they work with the yarns (I’m looking at you Denny, for help with this last part!). The final bit is to acquire any needles I’m in need of (preferably in the Addi Lace size range) and make some more stitch markers (if needed).
