View Full Version : FO:Forest Canopy Shawl
02-18-2008, 06:28 PM
I bought this yarn, with a gift certificate from my son, for my 50th Birthday! It's called, Araucania, Ranco Multi. It is hand dyed in Chile. It's got a lot of peacock blues and purples in it. I bought 2 hanks...used one and started the next one, but have enough left to knit my little granddaughter, some socks!
I knit a Forest Canopy Shawl for my sister, for Christmas and loved it...so I just had to have one too! I wanted mine longer, so instead of knitting until I had 195 stitches on the needles, I knit until there were 307 stitches.

That is GORGEOUS! It looks like so much work. I'm always so impressed with people who have the patience to knit lace. It reminds me of the swallowtail shawl.

That's the next shawl that I want to knit...the Swallowtail! I can't wait!

Thanks so much to all of you for your sweet comments...I can't believe I knit it myself...to think that just 15 mos. ago, I wasn't knitting anything....I love learning new things and creating beautiful things. I'm working on an Ice Queen right now, pattern found on Knitty...it's really pretty too...yarn is like knitting with a cobweb! LOL!
