I with you all the way on the shawl thing. If you read my archives you will find many shawl posts some of which talk about my highland triangle lace shawl I finished up a few months ago. I wear shawls everyday and find that they are almost my favorite things to knit. I'm in the middle of the fiber trends Field of Flowers Shawl right now and am thinking about either the sheep shawl or the Litla Dimun from folk shawls for my next project. I saw that one again in your finished object photo album and had to pull out the book and read the pattern again. Good luck on finishing up the Highland triangle shawl - hope it wears well.

MMmm, shawls... I have a fair collection of woven shawls (of various materials and designs) and have just begun collecting patterns for knitted shawls. I finally started a shawl for me, after making one for the Gran and now one for my Aunt. Thanks for the links, it's like bonus hits for me today!

A little off the shawl topic, but I was wondering if you had played with your loaned spinning wheel lately? Or should I not have mentioned it?

I, too, love shawls. I have the Folk Shawls book which I drool over a lot. And I want to be Tasha Tudor! Have you seen the book about her called The Private World of Tasha Tudor? It's a must have if you love her.

Nope. It's not on the needles yet. But I'm thinking. ;-) (I knew you'd be asking!)

I am a LOTR geek wanna be, love the site, but didn't see a shawl. Can we talk?

I'm just about to start the lace edging on my Tasha Tudor shawl and I'm stuck, I don't quite understand the directions about casting on with a wimpy cast on and then turning the work after knitting a bit. Any chance you can help out a beginner! I would appreciate any feedback. You can email me at meresfab4@gmail.com or visit my site. Thanks so much and blessings in your day!
