ISO Knitter(s)

I mentioned a while ago that I was starting a new shawl design and haven’t had much to report on it mostly because I’ve not knit on it’s prototype lately.  Mostly because I started a new job about a month ago, and while I didn’t really knit while at work before (it was a yarn shop, so there was ‘some’ knitting here and there), since at the new place I’ve hardly knit during the week at all.  Starting new things is exhausting!  So, the shawl progress, even though it is a quite basic design, has been pretty slow going.

As you can see in the photo above, it does now have a bottom edge! (at least enough to photograph a little section of it that is)  The pattern is close to being ready to release and I am looking for a couple knitters that might be interested in a sneak peak version of the pattern to work thru and let me know if they encounter any issues.  If you are interested, let me know!  Leave a comment with how I can get ahold of you 🙂

The shawl is knit from the top down in garter stitch (so why It’s taken me this long…?) and finished with a edge that is knit sideways.  A typical 100g skein of fingering/sock yarn should work fine.

  1. Hey Melinda! If you still need someone mid-August, please let me know. I will have a month and a half of vacation and nothing else better to do and would love to knit that biznitch up! 🙂

    • I will Larry – and if not this, I have another I’ll be working that I could get to you by then. Will you still be in Germany, or heading back to Ptld some time?

  2. You left Happy Knits?! Wow! Congratulations on the new job though! I’d volunteer to help out with the new shawl but have been in this weird non-knitting slump lately (lots of spinning has been accomplished!). Need to kick myself out of it for the new Ravellenic Games though!

    • you can be knitting up some of that spinning now! 😉
      at least you have been spinning! I did dye some fiber for TdF and didn’t do anything with it AND have hardly been knitting.

  3. Hello!
    That’s a gorgeous colour and pattern – and I love garter st. If you still need someone to test for you I’ll happy to send you my id – am, on Ravelry too (lazylibran).
