Derailed Again

Another pattern idea has messed with my schedule :) This was born of a desire to knit garter stitch stripes in a shawl that I would actually wear. The shape is an asymmetrical triangle and the stripes are random. I used leftovers from my other shawls I've knit this summer for both of these. The pattern is going out to testers today!

In YOTM news - my May yarn project is finally done!

My August yarn project has been cast on:

July's yarn is still untouched. It will be a cooler weather sweater anyway, so I doubt I'll get to it before the end of the month.

This is my September yarn - Yarn Chef Creme Brulee laceweight. Silk and merino. Yum. I may not cast on for this until early in 2012 because I am so far behind on other things I want to get done sooner. I have another idea for a pattern that I want to use this for too.


  1. "Schedule."

    You said, "schedule."

    Please explain ... the word is vaguely familiar, and yet, I can't quite put my finger on its meaning?

  2. I really love the shawl Laura, let me know when you publish it. I try to keep up on Raverly, but I have been behind and I don't want to miss it.
    Remember your last shawl? The one made from Madeline? It was a couple of shades of brown with a cream stripe. Do you remember the names of the colors? I am going to have to order some because my yarn shop doesn't have a huge variety and I can't get it there. I love the colors in your new shawl.. browns and greys. Have a good weekend!!

  3. Love the colors in your new scarves. How big are they? The neckline on the sweater looks familar, what is the pattern? Hope all is well.
