Knitting 2015

I completed quite a few shawls in 2015. Below are photos of some of them.

This was my favorite from all my knitting last year. I made it with a sport weight yarn in a soft blend of merino wool and bamboo. The pattern is called Amaryllis by Ágnes Kutas-Keresztes and can be purchased on Ravelry


I made quite a few of this beaded shawl in various colors last year. Yarn is a lace weight blend of mohair and silk, and the beads are Miyuki 8/0s

Below are photos of this shawl I made in other colors


The color of this one was a bit of a mistake. I thought I had grabbed the Christmas colors but by the time I realized I had started with wrong color I was too far in to rip it out and start over. I’ll make one in the Christmas colors before next christmas.


I also made several of this shawl – shown below plus a clover green & wallaby brown color that I forgot to take photos of. The last one was made with fingering weight yarn in blend of wool & nylon. The others were made with DK weight yarn in blend of wool & silk.
