aestlight

I saw this lovely shawl, Aestlight yesterday. I'm now well through the garter stitch rows. Just lovely and different to my two Ishbels. Triangle is knitted, then stitches are picked up down the two shorter sides of the triangle. I'm using some Romney which I bought at a Spinners and Weavers Guild open day some years ago. It's handspun and undyed, still a warm shade of brown. I'm considering dyeing it later but am not sure what would go well. I'll make the shawl first and then decide.

The pattern is also available on Ravelry, cost yesterday was just over $6.00 Australian. Gudrun has a designer group on Ravelry and there are lots of other lovely things there. Some beautiful hats and berets caught my eye.

Photos to follow when there's more than a garter stitch triangle to see.

BTW I just remembered. The guild has another open day from 9:30 am this coming Saturday at Burwood. St Paul's Anglican Church, a couple of blocks up Burwood Road from the station. Very easy to find. I've spent quite a bit this month and am not sure whether I'll be there. Just realised that's tomorrow. Somehow I keep thinking that today is Wednesday.

i'm so thankful you pointed this one out to me yesterday - I'm itching to make a lovely small shawl as soon as TdF is over. I'm going to look around in my stash this afternoon for a likely candidate!

It is gorgeous - look forward to seeing yours... still playing with Ishbel and Clapotis 2 and lots of other wips, so I'm keen to see yours all done!
