Woodland Shawl KAL- Starts July 6!
I'm going to be knitting this shawl: Woodland Shawl in a couple of weeks (when the yarn I ordered comes in). Is anyone interested in knitting along with me?

I think this is a great shawl for beginning lace knitters. The pattern seems fairly simple and it only takes 460 yds. If you knit it in Knit Picks Palette then it's very cheap too...bonus !!! The yarn runs from $1.59-$2.19, so $4.77-$6.57 to knit this shawl. Each ball is 231 yds., so I figured 3 to be safe.

I'm going to knit mine in Autumn Heather.

Here are some links if you're interested in checking it out:

Ravelry page, 966 projects

Is anyone interested in learning lace with me!?!

I followed the Ravelry link and found it is already saved to my favorites. This is something I'd like to do, but I can't commit to joining right now.

I'll probably follow along to get some guidance for when I knit it later!

My yarn came in sooner than I expected so I'm hoping to start this pretty soon. I'm going to try to finish the socks I'm working on first.

I think it feels fine. Not the softest I've ever felt, but I wouldn't call it rough either, somewhere in the middle I guess. I ordered it in two colors and they are both beautiful, so I hope it knits up nicely.

I have not knit a swatch with it yet to see how it feels while knitting, but I think I will like it just fine. My only concern right now is if it will be splitty, as it looks like two strands twisted together rather loosely.

Here is my yarn for my shawl. It looks a bit scrappy because I have unskeined it a couple of times to have a good look at it. It is The Knittery Merino Cashmere from Australia.

Your yarn is beautiful! I can't wait to see how it looks with this shawl.

I decided to frog and restart with 113 stitches. I'm only through 1 repeat right now, but I already like it better. Probably won't get to work on it today as we are meeting up with some friends for a long over due visit.

Arrrgh! I'm afraid to dye my yarn because I'm not really loving any of my samples - they seem to 'cotton candy'- ish for this shawl - do you know what I mean? I've tried blending some different colors to tone it down a bit, but I'm still not happy with the colors I'm getting. And I'm afraid if I dye some and then decide I need to make the shawl longer, I won't be able to match my yarn exactly. I wonder how much extra I would need? I currently have 540 yards.

I wish I would have just found something I liked. I may go shopping again. At least I have the benefit of your casting on yesterday and deciding it may need an extra repeat or two width wise, but I really don't want to get left behind on this. I'm sorry you had to rip and re-start Lieuvena - but it's probably good that you went ahead and did it now rather than changing your mind a few more repeats into it (that's what I always do - try to ignore it only to find that my dissatisfaction really just doesn't go away) Sounds like you did the right thing!

I have done 7 repeats so far, I will try to do at least one repeat each night so it does not drag on too long. I do 1 repeat of the baby blanket I am doing as well, but have not been getting home from work til about 8.30 each night. Looking good though!
