A shower of shawls

Well that title may be a bit of an exaggeration. A couple of shawlettes would be more accurate but not alliterative. I have used a couple of the special yarns from my stash and made a couple of small shawls/triangular scarves. One is made  from Filatura Di Crosa's Superior : rose coloured cashmere/silk blend and the other from Collinette's Jitterbug in forest. The former is a bottom up birch lace pattern and the latter a garter stitch shawl with an eyelet edge that I called rick rack because the garter stitch in the variegated yarn looked a bit like rows and rows of rick rack.

Frills and thrills

The frilly theme continues with my swap gift for my swap partner in the Australian Knitters group on Ravelry. My partner said she would like a tea cosy and that she liked strong jewel like colours. I created a frilly tea cosy in Needleworks Luxury Gold Seal Mohair from my stash. I used black as the main colour and knitted in rows of frills in red, purple and pink. I have christened this design "Cancan tea cosy" as the frills reminded me of the frills on a cancan dress.
