Scribble Lace Shawl
Perfect for spring and cool summer nights, a Scribble Lace Shawl is knitted alternating a lace weight and bulky yarns. The shop sample was knitted using one skein of Knit One Crochet Too Doucer et Soie (70% Baby Mohair/30% Silk - 225 yards) and Rowan Summer Tweed (118 yards) and size 13 circular needles. The pattern is easy and designed for any level of knitter. The basic pattern is available for free at Yarns With A Twist
The Rules are simple:
The rest is up to you. Be creative. YWAT has a large stock of beautiful lace weight yarns ranging from simple to super fancy. Same for the bulky yarns. If you need help choosing your yarns, we will be there to offer suggestions.
UFOs = unfinished Objects are very invasive, have the tendency to multiply and take over drawers, closets, knitting bags and not to mention whole rooms. Do you find yourself buying more and more knitting bags to just give your UFOs a new hiding place? Then it's time to fight the finishing battle!
Friday, March 25 th, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm we will have a Finishing Party
Bring one or two of your UFOs and a snack if you like. We will provide beverages and help to get you started with your finishing battle.
continues Friday, March 18th from 7:00 pm to 9:00pm

Sample pair in shop was knitted with Ella Rae Classic Print. Mission Falls 136 was used for the DK weight.
