Knitted not Blocked, My Part is Finished

Diligently I have been keeping to my goal to finish at least three shawls before I started another. (I have yarn and patterns for four shawls, patiently waiting).

Hope’s shawl made from garage sale find by Grandpa Red and sox yarn. I like the way it finished and hope a young girl will remember Grandpa when she wears it.

Shelby is Hope’s older sister. If you make a shawl for one granddaughter, the other granddaughter needs one, too. I love this yarn, the colors are bright, the stitch definition is good and it felt nice as it flowed through my fingers.

To see what others are finishing check out FO Fridays and Fiber Arts Friday.

  1. I really like the second shawl. It’s exactly the sort of thing I like. I must go and favourite the pattern so I don’t forget it.

    • It was a fun knit, ruffle first then the body. . .thanks

  2. Those two shawls are beautiful! Yesh, you can’t give one grandchild and gift without the other getting one too. Hopefully they will cherish the time you put into them ( I know I still have many of my grandma’s gifts she made me)

    • Opps, misunderstanding – grand daughters of Grandpa Red you bought the hot pink mohair hair at a garage sale. I’d like to call them mine. thanks

  3. I love your shawls!

    • thanks

  4. How sweet to knit shawls for your granddaughters! I’m the same way in that I always have more shawls I want to knit.

    • Opps, again, granddaughters belong to Grandpa Red who bought the hot pink mohair at a garage sale. I love them like their mine.

  5. I know that if my Grama had presented either of these shawls to me when I was young I would have been thrilled. Nice job

    • I just think in my mind I’m grannie, but the granddaughters of Grandpa Red who bought the hot pink yarn at a garage sale. Thanks

  6. Both shawls are beautiful, but I especially like the second one. Those are two lucky little girls.

    • I like the second better also, but felt like I needed to use the yarn Grandpa bought for something.
