Well, I did finish my chenille shawl Sat and wore it to church Sunday morning. It is my new favorite shawl. Nothing compares to rayon chenille for drape and luxury. I used a lace weight hand dyed wool for the warp with a little bling-bling ribbon every 2 ". The bling-bling is just slightly visible and really makes it look elegant and the colors are so rich! The colors in the warp are garnet, mulberry, brown, coral and rust, interspersed with a dark cherry wool/rayon yarn. Thankfully, I have about 850 yds of this lace weight left to make a small shawl with. On my dye day, I am going to try to duplicate the colors in that yarn. They just literally take your breath away. I really enjoy weaving. Next to knitting, it is my favorite hobby.
I have a lot to do this week or a lot that I want to do this week. I want to finish the bind off on my plain shawl, work on a kidsilk haze triangular shawl that I need for my lace book for photography in November, and more.
I am almost at the 600 st part on my alpaca/pink/circular shawl. I have a trip planned for Thurs-Sat with some girlfriends. We are going back to SDC to the Craftmen Festival. I have to decide what projects to take, probably the Elsbeth Lavold shawl. It is an easy pattern and will be pretty portable. Hope all is well in your various knitting worlds. Congrats to Fleegle on her edging progress.
