Chill in the Air

This month is definitely colder than last month. There’s a chill in the air that’s not really noticeable when standing in the sun, but slowly seeps into your soul if you’re in the shade. The kind of cold weather that’s too hot for a sweater but perfect for a shawl! ๐Ÿ™‚

Chill in the Air shawl -- blocking

I knit this shawl for my sis — it looks like she prefers the rectangular ones. Lots of eyelets in this shawl, and I broke them up into repeating thick and thin sections between blocks of uniformly wide stockinette sections. So it’s not too warm and not too airy — it’s just right. (I’m so reminded of Goldilocks when I think that! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

The eyelets form a winding texture between them that I just love!

Over some serial episodes, I added quite a few tassels and formed fringes at both ends. I’d love to see them fully frayed over time — and it looks like they’re as eager as I am to get there!

So how do you like the shawl? My sis loves it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Beautiful! What type of yarn did you use? It looks so smooth, I love it!
    Oh and “The kind of cold weather thatโ€™s too hot for a sweater but perfect for a shawl!” – sounds like summer here in Ireland if the weather is really good ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thank you, Kat! ๐Ÿ˜ This is Nako Pirlanta, a microfiber yarn.
      About the weather – lol… I’d been to Ireland once in December, but your summers will probably work better for me! โ˜บ

      1. Yes, it’s perfect climate for knitting ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Never used microfiber before, but it seems great for summer projects. Need to keep that in mind next time when shopping for yarn ๐Ÿ™‚
