Draupner Shawl

I’m a little behind in posting this, but if you’ve looked at my Ravelry store in the last few days, you’ll have noticed another new pattern!

Draupner Shawl


This unique shawl features a fun scalloped edging worked with short rows in Garter Stitch. Lacy columns keep the body of the shawl interesting to knit, while the elongated Garter Stitch pattern shows off handdyed yarn to great effect! A gentle curve in the body of the shawl ensures that it wraps nicely around your shoulders or neck for a comfortable fit.

one Rhinebeck FO

Too bad it’s not for me!

finished Rhinebeck socks!

One pair of long, thick socks in Dream in Color Classy, colour Cocoa Kiss – a perfect blend of grey and brown. So cushy, too! I worked these on 3.25mm needles for a good dense fabric, over 52 sts. You can’t see in the photo, but I continued the ribbing down the back of the heel flap as well.

In my mind, I’m seeing these on my fella as we hang out in our rented house with friends, warding off the chill with warm alcoholic drinks and lots of cheese-related foods. (I do know that it’s forecast to be pretty warm next weekend. Don’t burst my bubble!)

And my Rhinebeck project?


Well. I still have a week, right?

P.S. Stay tuned – I have a new pattern and a pattern sale coming up!
