Vote on my next large knitting project….

I finished son’s socks. I’m almost done daughter’s blanket. Tomorrow, assuming daughter isn’t sick, I have enough time between singing lesson and picking the kids up to visit the local yarn shop.

I’ve already decided on the next pair of socks: The Sock Knitters Anonymous September pattern by Nancy Bush.
No, I don’t think I’ll do yellow.

Yes, you need to be a Ravelry member to see the links. Nothing I can do about that.

For my other project I want to knit a round lace shawl and/or table cloth. Not the same 12-row pattern for rounds and rounds. Probably use a kettle-dyed, something with subtle colour changes that will let the pattern show nicely, but not a solid.

Your vote?

Choice:

Rona Lace Shawl

Mandala

Forest Path

(Yes, not round, but it fits the rest of the criteria, and keeps floating to the top.)

  1. I vote Rona followed by Girasole, but have you seen Shipwreck Shawl by Knitting Harpy? Its a Knitty pattern. My lovely computer is acting up and I can’t link atm because its stuck on some other website!

  2. Here’s the Shipwreck Shawl.

    I love the inside bits, but 57 rounds of yo,k2tog would drive me nuts. (Hmmm, need to look at the other finalists. I think one of them might have the same problem.)

    I bought yarn for the Ravelry Sock Knitters Anonymous September SockDown today. It’s not yellow, so won’t count for prizes, but I think I’ll be happy with it. Must add up the summer bills before the next one. Was really, really tempted by Lorna’s Laces, but went with Lana Grossa, which I think is a bit thicker.

  3. And, while uploading my latest pics to Ravelry, I looked at the group for the LYS, and saw the original EZ pi shawl. So that’s now added to the list.

    (Yes, I found it on a site you don’t need to be a member to see.)
