Riva Del Mare {a mama knit}

IMG_0258

I recently completed this beautiful Riva Del Mare shawl.

finally knitting something for myself and lady it’s had a lot of wear and a lot of admiration.

the delicate lacy knit has a leaflike pattern along the outer edge which appealed to me. i haven’t done masses of lace projects, but i enjoy the concentration needed and turning lines of gobbledeegook code into something oh so gorgeous!

i may make those socks one day mama…IMG_0248

i ended up test knitting the pattern for Joan and enjoyed it so much I will use it as one of the patterns in my Introduction to lace knitting workshop {for adventurous beginners} at Weave in Bellingen in November. don’t be scared. adventure beyond knit and purl into the holey land of lacery…

can you even guess the piece begins at the top centre and you knit in a ever increasing arc? so clever!!!IMG_0246

Joan appreciated my photographs so much she has featured them on her pattern! That was exciting for me! you can see them here.

fun fun fun
