I’m not a shawl person. I bought one last year at a sale for $10 because I thought it was a neat pattern and I wanted to spend time with it to figure out how it worked, but I’ve never worn it and I doubt I ever will. I don’t like having to hold things in place, and tying a shawl around me would never work.
My mother, however, would really appreciate a beautiful, delicate shawl and so I’m going to knit one for her for Christmas. I’m starting now because it’s a lace project and I figure I can take my time with it and do something new for the Amazing Lace.
I’m now taking submissions for which shawl to knit. I haven’t really taken a look at shawl patterns, so I don’t know which ones are the best. Here’s your chance to wreak your havoc on my life! To which shawl should I devote the next 5 months of my life?
As a guide: she likes really simple, elegant clothes. She’s teutonic, dontcha know. But if there’s something completely over the top that you just wanna namedrop, I love looking at new patterns so namedrop them like it’s hot. If you don’t have a shawl idea, what’s your favourite lace pattern?
Here’s what I’m considering:
Flowery awesomeness :: Rambling Leaves :: Flower Basket Shawl (by a woman with my name!) :: Candle Flame :: Diamond Fantasy Shawl :: Print Oâ€™ The Wave Stole :: Fishtail Lace Scarf (PDF) :: Kiri (PDF) :: Peacock Feathers Shawl :: Flirty Ruffles Shawl :: Michaela :: RÃ¥hvidt tÃ¸rklÃ¦de :: Icarus Shawl :: Lochschal :: Lacy Shawl
