Knit a parrot sweater for me?
Wow! You did that for real!?
yea- flashback to the 60's and ripple afghans
MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation
I actually love those ripple afghans. I've never made one for myself, nor do I own one, but for some reason I like them.
Mario, I love that. What a great pattern, where can I find it? Do you always block on the lawn?
First of all, can you write out that pattern for me. Second of all, is there any particular reason for the shape you blocked it to? Is that some secret that I need to be in on for triangle shawls?
The "butterflied" shape stays on the shoulders better - it's done with just a few extra increases....
Just wonderful, you are amazing!!!!!!!!!
Ha! Caught you out doing color knitting! I wouldn't have thought of combining lace with color, but this shawl is absoultely beautiful!
Stripes is about it for me with colour knitting. *grin*
Each pattern repeat is it's own colour - so it lent itself to the stripes.
not sure which I love more... the shawl or the way you blocked it! I have never seen someone block using golf spikes and the lawn before!
again... you're a genius!
Another gorgeous piece. The idea of stripes and lace is grand...I enjoy doing afghans like that but haven't thought about shawls. Thanks for the inspiration. Like the tees and lawn to block...if I did it all my friends would think I finally took up the game. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

So, walk me through this just once. To make the shape you did above, how many stitches do I cast-on, I can not find a Row 1. Is it seven? The three knits on each side and the one for the blue square, right? I get all the abbreviations except for s2kp, is that 'slip 2, one as if to knit, one as if to purl'?
yes, cast on seven and knit back.
Then the first row of the chart is the 3 border,, knit 1, 3 border. (knit 7 total) and the return row (4) is k3, p1, k3
s2kp is slip two together as if to knit, knit one, pass the slipped stitches over. (centered double decrease)
ERRATA: row 27 is missing a '\' in the box left of the second yarnover, reading right to left.
Well I will keep this all in mind. This is my next project after I finish my socks. Yes I am still working on them, if you can call being too sick to knit working. At this rate It will be fall again before I finish my socks, so this will make a very nice Christmas/more like Easter gift for my mother. I haven't decided, but I am thinking of doing it in black.
another missing ssk--in row 39 after the 7th O (just to the left of
the 1st A that's on the row below).
S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G just sayin'…
talk to you soon...
talk to you soon...
My god that's amazing! The colors are perfect together!
Kyle chose them - I just used up the leftovers I had.
I will try lace again, I will try lace again, I will try...oh Look SHINEY
absolutely amazing Mario, I think this is my favorite of all your shawls.
