Finally some pictures of my knitting!

I thought I would share some pictures of my 3 favorite shawls. The Circular Leaf Shawl is made in a 2/8 shetland wool that is close to a sock/fingering weight yarn, in a wonderful, rich terra cotta color. The Triangular Leaf Shawl is made in a sock/finger weight natural colored wool yarn. The Rectangular Leaf Shawl is made in a 2/14 wool/silk blend yarn that is a light taupe. As you can tell, I love the leaf motif design and use it whenever I can. With the right yarn, it is lace knitting heaven!!!!!! Enjoy (click on the picture to get a bigger view of the detail)! By the way, I did finish the vest last night. I will try to get a picture of it after it is blocked. I have 3 more rows on the Baruffa Square shawl; then the bind off! The pictured shawls are not the shawls that I have been working on for my book. They are my "I love knitting, I love autumn, just for the joy of knitting" knitting. We all have those projects. They are what makes us happy knitters.

Aha! Found it. Sort of. Brand names would be a nice addition :)

Both of the yarns that I used to make the circular and retangular shawls were bought from Webs in the weaving yarn section. I bought them in cones. That was all the information on the label inside the cone. Sorry, I wish I could be more specific. I have made all 3 in sock/fingerweight and also in laceweight (not cobweb). I buy alot of my laceweight from Knit Picks. I bought some Jaggerspun zephyr, but have not had time to try it, but it is the same size as the Knit Picks laceweight yarn. Hope this helps.
