Adamas shawl

It's time to pull out the knitting before anyone should think this is just another quilting blog.  Although I've been enjoying the time and space to work on quilts more since coming back to the US, the knitting basket hasn't been more than an arm's reach from my spot on the couch.  This Adamas shawl that I started in 2008 has been languishing in my craft box for a long time, but I recently pulled it out to send to someone special.

This prompted me to take a closer look at my Ravelry notebook and I was delighted to see that the site now has more than 4 million users.  Congrats, Ravelry!!  Seeing those WIPs that are still in my knitting basket has me ready to set aside the quilts for a while.  Torn about which project to pick up at night, at least!


  1. This is so pretty! I am adding this pattern to my favorites! I love the yarn you used, its a great color.

  2. Is this the shawl for your tea ceremony sensei?

    1. Good memory, Megan!! It's the same yarn but a new pattern to use what was left after the one I made her. :)

  3. Beautiful! I love those scalloped edges. I really want to try this type of lacey shawl myself. Did you finish the teal one you were working on too?

  4. I love this! Great pattern and it came out beautifully!

  5. Thanks Clare! And THANK YOU for the reminder that I haven't sent this out yet. I'll be heading to the P.O. today!
