W.I.P. Wednesday

So many WIPs…..

The past week I have been working on some shawls….

No, it’s not a stingray…… it’s a shawl.

I am a huge fan of Outlander, I love listening to the audiobooks while I am knitting or crocheting. I was so excited when I found the Facebook group, Outlander Pattern Central. They have the best knit and crochet patterns from the T.V series.

This one should resemble Claire’s striped shawl from season 4.

A few weeks ago I was having a really strange dream, I can’t tell you what the dream was about because I have no clue. I can tell you that in the dream I was wearing a really cool looking shawl. After I woke up I started working on making a shawl like the one I was wearing in the dream. I finally figured it out.

I should be finished with it in a few more days. I only have 4 more rows to go and then I will need to put the finishing touches on. I think I will call this one the Summer dream shawl.

Yesterday I started on another shawl I am not sure what it will be when I am finished.


Find the perfect shawl for you.

Until last Spring I was not a huge shawl fan. I found myself needing a wrap to go with a dress I was wearing to a party. I spent several hours searching for the perfect pattern and I just fell in love with so many different designs. I am going to share with you a few of my favorite shawl patterns. From beginner to intermediate designs you are sure to find something right for you. Please note that not all of the pictures are of my work. Some are directly from the pattern that the link will take you to.

My absolute favorite shawl designs are all from the same designer on ravelry, Jinty Lyons. Not all of her patterns are free but they are well worth the investment. Just click on the link above each picture to go directly to the pattern site.
