i consider myself a very spiritual person.  i believe there is a god and that he watches over us and sometimes gives us guidence and support.  i believe in karma.  i believe in the truth that what goes around comes around.  i believe that what we do in this life will transpose to the next.  Call me a hinducathoudist.

Shetland Triangle

All I know is that when I pass on from this world I want to come back as Evelyn A. Clark. 

Every shawl I have made (be that it’s currently at Two) I am more and more in love with her eye for design.  It’s simple and yet striking.  This is her Shetland Shawl from Wrap Style.  It truly was a relaxing knit which had a pattern repeat that you can pretty much memorize after two go arounds.  I did put it down for a bit… it was supposed to be my mother’s 35th wedding anniversary present, but now it’s just in time for Christmas!

I was a little bit anxious to get some pics out of this beauty so bear with the 8:30pm-lamp-on-the-dresser light.  The weather here has been pretty craptastic this week and I haven’t had decent sunlight.   Perhaps with the next sunny day I’ll do some outdoors shots!

This shawl was made out of yarn I bought on sale from the now closed Handknits in Englewood.  On futher reserach it has since been discontinued.  It’s a luxurous cashmere/silk blend called Richesse Et Soie. from Knit One Crochet Two.  I used about 4 balls using size 5 addis Turbos.

I also was anxious with the blocking as I didn’t have near enough blocking pins. (and when I saw near enough I kinda mean none).  So I fiddled with it and stretched it with my fingers and it turned out fine by me.  Points kinda bother me and if my mom wants more of a point I have no problems reblocking to her desire, but something tells me she’s gonna love it just the way it is.  Christmas Gift #1 down.

    I’m knitting the shawl in the same yarn, same color! I think it’ll wear beautifully…I’m hoping to have it finished this weekend. I can’t wait to see yours finished!

    Beautiful shawl! I’ve been considering that pattern for a while now, and I think that you’ve just sold me on it…I can’t wait to see your swallowtail when it’s done!

    Beautiful shawl! I have some Richesse et Soie in the stash, but I think only 3 balls, sadly. Did you use all of the fourth?
    I’m another Evelyn Clark lover. I love the flexibility of most of her shawl patterns–can the Shetland shawl also be knit in any weight from lace to worsted?

    Both your Shetland Triangle and your Swallowtail are beautiful! They will make their recipients very happy and proud I’m sure!
    I couldn’t agree with you more about Evelyn Clark. Her designs are all simple and elegant, my favorite type!
