Pavone Shawlette test update

My tester Sara is using Rowan RYC Silk Wool DK in purple! Isn't it fantastic? She's doing a great job. :)

Pavone Shawlette. (Or: I must be crazy!!)

Two shawls in less than a month! Don't ask me's just that time of the year when I go crazy and become compulsive about knitting and crocheting what is more congenial to me: shawls. After Cupid here is the Pavone Shawlette, my first attempt at a semicircular construction. It was fun to make and it only took me a couple of weeks which isn't much considering I only knit for no more than 2-3 hours a day. The pattern is ready and being tested and it will be available in about a week.

Comments, please!! :)

Cupid Shawl: FO and new pattern.

And so I'm finally out of hibernation and what better way to come back than a new design? I finished this shawl in just over a week. (For the record, watching the Alien saga on dvd as well as Back to the future 1, 2,and 3!) It was fun to make but what I like about this project is that pattern is easily memorized and once you get the hang of it there's no need to keep referring to the instructions. Pattern is already available and you can find it as well as more details in My Original Designs or on Ravelry
So what is the next project? Well, first of all I will need for my hands to heal, then I'm going to start working on a knitting pattern that has been on my mind for quite a while. But...all in good time!
