I would love to join your OddBall shawl knitting group if you'll have me. I would love to share the feeling I got from you all when I received my shawl. Nana
Thank you for your kind message. We are so glad you like your shawl!
And we'd be so pleased to have you join our little group of shawl knitters.
Right now, there are 8 of us. (Believe it or not, at one time, we had over 30 knitters involved in the project!)
We'll be starting some new shawls in a couple weeks. We've decided to try making some rectangle shawls for a while, because we already have plenty of triangle shawls in progress.
The rectangle shawls will be knit lengthwise (200 stitches each row), and we should change colors after each inch. So, the finished shawls will be pretty and colorful, with equal sections of color throughout. I'm looking forward to seeing how they turn out!
I'll be casting on 3 rectangle shawls next week, using neutral colors. They should work well while we are learning how to make rectangles together. Once again, we will just be knitting every row, to keep it simple. Just be sure to knit an EVEN number of rows, so the color changes will be consistent throughout.
Here are the names of the shawls:
" - brown yarns
"Pure & Natural
" - beige and brown 100% WOOL yarns
" - green, brown, beige, grey, and black yarns
I think we'll use worsted
weight yarns on these three, just to continue our "new style" vein.
Plus, they will be nice and warm for our Fall and Winter recipients.
I'll need about 4 or 5 knitters on each shawls, so let me know now which one(s) you would like to join!
