This is one of my recent knitting projects that I completed. I knit this triangle shawl in Lion Homespun yarn so it is nice and cozy. Homespun yarn is one of my favorites to use to create soft and warm accessories or sweaters. It is one of my go to yarns in the winter months so I always buy it when it is on sale so I have a stash on hand for when a new idea strikes me.
I really like how my new design came out. I got the idea for making this after watching some of the craftsy class Sweetheart Knit Shawls. So far I have still only watched a few of the videos but seeing how to knit a triangle shawl gave me this idea to design my own. I just wanted a basic knit shawl and not a lot of fancy stitches for this one. I did do an openwork stitch at the lower edge though.
I knit this shawl on larger needles size 13 needles so it knit up pretty fast. I am going to be making another one in a different color of Homespun with possibly a different lower edging – I haven’t decided yet.
This shawl has gotten some good use from me so far. I took it to Florida with me a few weeks ago and wore it there in the evening. I also wore it to church the other day. It is nice to take with me in the car in case I find myself in a cool environment and then I have something warm to wrap around me. I have also just wore it around my house when I am a little chilly.
The craftsy class Sweetheart Knit Shawls so far is a great class. I need to go back and finish watching the rest of it as I always learn some new and helpful info from all the craftsy classes I have taken. There are three shawl designs you can make from the class but I have not attempted any of them yet. They are all very pretty designs. You can click on the craftsy class link to learn more about craftsy knitting classes if you are interested. I have also purchased another lace knitting class Lace Knitting: Basics and Beyond with Eunny Jang but have not started watching that one yet. A friend of mine also purchased it and we thought it would be fun to take it and discuss what we have learned.
I am currently knitting a new lace and knit mobius wrap and just finished a couple of mobius cowls. I will be sharing those on my blog soon so be sure to subscribe via bloglovin, email or RSS to receive future blog posts.
Have a great day!
