A shawl I wove with the cobweb weight silk/cashmere, 4 ends wound together. It is sett at 24 epi with 24 ppi, and the pattern is "Jane's Snowflake Runner" from "Twill Thrills: The Best of Weaver's". I used the original color "Silver Fox" for warp and dyed the weft black.

Child's set

20. april 2007 08:40:47

I made this set for my daughter, from crunchy silk, colour "nude mix". I used one cone, and about 1/3 of another.

The gauge was 20-21 stitches/10cm, with 4mm needles. I found that the yarn takes moss stitch and lace patterns nicely, but that I will avoid k1 p1 ribbing in the future.

Shawl from 6/28 in "Grouse Moor"

04. april 2007 12:27:45

I made Hyrna Herborgar (from the Icelandic Shawls book, translated) in the 6/28, and love, love, love it! The yarn was perfect for the look I wanted - heavier for cuddly warmth, but still lacy. The shawl took one and a bit partial cones. Once it was off the needles and blocked I immediately had to get started on another Colour Mart project - with lace weight cashmerino in a bright red. Yummy. When photos happen, I'll add them.

Shetland Garden Faroese Shawl in 2/28 silk, ecru, doubled

02. april 2007 21:52:40

This is another great pattern by Sivia Harding. Used Knitpicks Options needles size 5. The yarn, now shawl, is beautiful, and there is quite a lot left over. Knitting the yarn doubled can be a bit tricky as it's easy to split, but not horrible. I'd do it again. I handwashed it in Synthrapol prior to blocking. It didn't bloom much, but is just lovely.

Martin Storey cardigan.

31. marts 2007 13:06:04

This is an adaptation of a Martin Storey
design from Jaeger JB24. It was knitted on 4mm
needles, using 3 strands of 2/28 cashmere, colour
Amoroso. The gauge was 22 sts and 36 rows to 10 cm.
I knitted this in a size 42/44 and its weight,
including the buttons and beads was 396g. Sorry, I
forgot to weigh it before the additions. This is a
very, very soft yarns, one of the first I bought from
Richard, and as far as I remember, is spun by T&D.

The major adaptation I made, apart from the gauge, was
replacing the original modified drop shoulders with
set-in sleeves. I also added a little more beading
than the pattern called for. Sorry that this does not
show up too well on the photograph, but I beaded in
the centre of each lace motif, above the garter stitch
detail on the fronts and back, round the heart motifs
on the front and above the moss stitch border on the
sleeves. I used Rowan pearly beads for this.

Hap shawl finished

13. marts 2007 10:43:05

I've finished the hap shawl made with DK 50%cashmere 50% merino, colour Lilac Moon. It is knitted on 4.5 and 5 mm needles and is 49 ins square (sized for a baby).

Hap shawls were knitted by the women of the Northern and Western Islands of Scotland for their own use. The word 'hap' means to wrap up for warmth! Shawls for women were about 5 or 6 feet square and were worn in a triangle, with the point down the back. The other two ends were then crossed over the breast, passed to the back and tied in the small of the back beneath the point. This keeps you very warn, but the arms and shoulders are unrestricted so that you can continue with your manual work!!

The pattern for this shawl, along with instructions for changing the size of the shawl and the weight of the yarn, will be with Richard shortly!!
