The Shawl
My head hurts. Just got a lesson on moving photos to the computer, resizing them, and posting them.

So here it is (I hope this works). It is knit in Elsebeth Lavold's LinSilk yarn.

Beautiful, delicate shawl! I love it. LinSilk must be a gorgeous yarn and a perfect weight. What pattern did you use?

That's sooooooooooooooooo lovely! I see now how it works for the shawl, thank you for the photo. I'm sorry posting it was such a pain, been there done that with the resize and all, so I know what you mean. If I ever get brave enough to try something where really need to count rows I just might try something like that.

I'm making it up as I go along. My husband flew out to Santa Fe to drive me home, three long days, and I was afraid it would get dirty, so I began my sweater, a deep olive colored wool. I'm afraid if I put that down, it will take years to get back to it, so the shawl is on the back burner for the moment.

After a bit of I managed to snap a shot of the sweater, resize and file. Something a little wonky with the way the camera/computer lists the photos, making them hard to find.

It is simply beautiful, but I have to ask - what kind of shape will the finished product have? Will you have to add some more pieces like the one below (to the left and right) to make a rectangular shape?

I do not really understand the practical use of the rectangle with the triangle-pattern. A shawl to me is either rectangular or triangular - will yours be more like an upside down stairpattern?

Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be creative and crafty.

I was inspired by this:

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...conneely-shawl

I'm somewhat following the dimensions of the Ballyconneely Shawl, but I really like lace, so my stitch patterns are very different. I like the effect that layering has, so I am joining most of the panels using a layering technique.

Though the concept eludes me, I'm sure it will be lovely. I'll have to see your FO to really understand. That's cool as far as I'm concerned. Creative processes are fascinating. I anticipate something stunning.

Hey GG - I know the way I explained it before was confusing My husband frequently tells me to use my words, but doesn't tell me how .

So when you did your ruffled bag, it's like that. I worked the bottommost portion of the back panel, ending on a RS row, put it on a spare needle, then I began working the following section, knitted approximately 5 rows, ending on a RS row, then purled both sections together, wrong sides up, with the bottom layer (the longer one) on top of the layer (the shorter one) with the working yarn. Then using my working yarn, I *purl together a stitch from the first layer together with a stitch from the second layer*, repeating from *to*.

HTH
