View Full Version : Has anyone knit Fibertrends Leaf Lace Shawl ?

12-10-2005, 11:15 PM
I am going on vacation & wanted to find another shawl to knit while looking @ LYS in the area and have decided on this one (http://www.fibertrends.com/viewer/V4_shawls.html) (OOPS, it didn't come up, u have to scroll to the "Leaf Lace Shawl" on the left for the pic), I think. I like it bc it's 2 sizes and can easily be knit in anything from lace wt - dk or lt worsted. I am thinking of using SWTC Bamboo or Oasis this time...but it all depends upon what I find while vacationing..I have decided that this is probably the project that I will buy while on vacation ;) (and a whole other list of maybes ;) )
I was wondering if anyone else had knit it and if so...your thought?! Please and thank you very much :D

Thanks, I have definitely decided after lots of looking that this is the project that I want to find & buy the pattern & yarn for! I also have a list of several patterns that aren't available @ my LYS that I will pick up if I see. AND the other thing that I hope to find are Susanne's Ebony Double Pointed Glove Needles; they are also made in rosewood, but I want the ebony...I think. These are not @ my LYS, either so I want to feel them before buying them, or I would have ordered them. Anyway, they come in only 3 sizes...1, 2, & 4 and I want 2 sets of each bc I knit in tandem. So...I hope to find all of these while vacationing. LOL, we don't leave until Dec 29th...I'm just planning ahead...know what I WANT, know what I'm looking for to 'feel' for future projects, not necessarily to buy @ this time...but I must feel the yarn and rub it on :eyebrow: Lonnie to make sure he likes it before making a sweater out of it....So, if we are arrested for my rubbing yarn all over my hubby in some Fla LYS...it will be bc I got carried away with the yarn 8-) feeling :roflhard: :rofling:
