A picture is worth a thousand words
What's on my needles (week 107)
So, THIS is the shawl everybody is talking about :)
The pattern: "Pebble Beach Shawl" by Helen Stewart
This pattern is written for three sizes SMALL 55"x 15", MEDIUM 71"x 18" and LARGE 79"x 20". The shawl in these pictures is the small size with just one skein of yarn 437 yards.
The yarn: Cascade Heritage Wave This yarn has a beautiful long color run with gradient color changes. It comes in many great colors. Featured shawl used the color 502 "solar".
Needles: US# 6 needles
And since there seems so much interest, I am offering a class to help you get started:
I will be giving a one hour class Saturday April 2nd, 9th and 16th (the next three Saturdays). You can choose between a morning or afternoon session.
Morning sessions 10:30-11:30am, Afternoon Sessions 2:30-3:30pm.
I will assist you to cast on , read the pattern, show you how to do the picot edging and explain how to block your finished shawl. Cost for the 1 hour class: $20.
The yarn ($14 per skein) and pattern ($5) are extra.
No prior sign-up needed, but classes are limited to a maximum of three.
This is a beginners class suited for those who have never knitted lace before.
