New Project: Oslo Walk Shawl

Pattern: Oslo Walk Shawl by Susanna IC, Interweave Knits Winter 2010
Yarn: The Periwinkle Sheep watercolors sock yarn, 75% merino, 25% nylon
Yardage: 420 yards
Color: Avocado (light green)
Needle: US Size 6
Cast on: May 29, 2010
Notes: I received this yarn from my friend Karin (of Periwinkle Sheep's fame) last year, and it really wanted to become a spring shawl. It took me some time to find the best pattern for it. This pattern has the right combination of delicate lace and short row shaping. It's a small shawl or a large scarf, but not a boring triangle or rectangle. So far I'm loving both the yarn and the pattern!

Be sure to visit Andrea's blog Wisdom Begins in Wonder, home of Fiber Art Friday. There is immense talent in the group, I'm surprise every week at what I see on the blogs!

I'm planning on making this one also. So be sure to share any thing you learn. I would love to do this as a knit-along with you but this month is "Finish Up Projects" month for me because Julie and I are doing a knit-along in July.

Oh, I'll have to see if I can find the pattern. I love the lovely green yarn.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

You cannot go wrong with a Susanna IC shawl pattern! I'll look forward to seeing that pattern done in green. I've seen lots of white versions. :)

I love it when you find just the right thing for a yarn you love. This shawl will be great!

I love those two yarns. The color is beautiful. I'll let Melissa find the pattern and knit it...I still don't have patience for lacey knitting yet. Yours will be gorgeous.
