Of course I use fingering weight yarn (if not lace weight) for shawls and I've been knitting the shawls up too ... You know I need the yarn for the Sock Yarn Blankie? It's only one quarter of the way done. I need a lot more yarn ... well a variety of sock yarn. Well I also knit those up and put some into classes I teach down at the LYS. The next class will be Winnowing. The textured lace shawl below. I knit it in a cashmere but any fingering weight yarn will do. A solid or heathered color is best I think.
Summer Flies (once again)
Afternoon Tea by the Seashore
And finally I've knit Winnowing
And between all that ... I knit an easy doggy sweater for my sister's little dog, Bonny. To match the hat I knit for her (my sister) a few years back no less ...
Now I'm all caught up I think until I finished the dozens of other projects I have on the needles still. Not to mention the millions of others that I want to cast on from my queue.
Did I tell you I have an obsession?
