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

Pattern page

Chart

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.

Hi Lieuvena! Let me know when you're ready to start and I will try to do this with you! I made a couple of lace bookmarks in May, and I loved doing lace! I've never tried anything big but this shawl is so pretty. I'm not sure what yarn I'll use yet. I may check my LYS tonight... Any idea how long it might take?

I think I'm going to try to start it next week. If you want to just set a date we can. I have no idea how long it will take, I will look around on Ravelry and try to get an idea. I'm not a super fast knitter though, so it may take me a while.

I've never done anything this big either, but I think it looks like a rather simple pattern. I've only knit a lace headband and a small doily, so this is an adventure for me!

Thanks again for joining along!

I would like to do it too. But I do have to finish a lovely pair of socks for Vintage Purls sock club, a baby blanket for my neighbours daughter, a sleeveless vest for me, make and decorate a 21st birthday cake for the same daughter, nuno felt the back of a vest we are doing at Spinning and Weaving group and make it etc.

But I have printed it off, and have been looking at yarn, but, what the heck, it does look so nice!
