Knitting Adventures … A Couple Of Colourful Shawls & Shawlettes …

_MG_1193-1Hey everyone … so its time for another Knitting Adventures update … this time I have a few shawls to share … four in fact … these were all fun to knit and for the most part were pretty simple TV knitting that doesn’t require too much attention for the majority of the pattern … which sometimes is just what you need … I find I tend to gravitate towards a project like this after I’ve completed a project that required more brain power …

_MG_0969-1So I’m back again with another Knitting Adventure project … this one was actually a lot of fun to make and had some new techniques that I hadn’t tried before so was also a pretty good learning experience along the way … this also happens to be the third pattern I’ve made from the Lovely Knitted Lace book (I’ve also made the Tulip Shawl and the Camellia Doleman) … This one is called the Angel Shawl … I hadn’t originally planned on making this one but as soon as I saw the yarn I knew this was the project for it …

Knitting Adventures … The Camellia Dolman Cardigan …

_MG_1356-1Hey everyone … so I had meant to post this earlier this week but a few other things and work stuff got in the way … anyway back now … I actually knit this cardigan way back in November when Perry’s family were over … it was from a book called Lovely Knitted Lace and this pattern was pretty much the main reason why I bought the book in the first place … I’ve knit a total of 3 projects from this book so far and one more already lined up … so I’d say it was pretty good value for money from that perspective … (the other one I’ve knit and already shared is the TULIP SHAWL … I’m sharing the third one later this week) …
