Lingonberry Leaf Estonian Triangle

I added some details to my Lingonberry Leaf Triangle. An additional lace edging and tassels. I am much more pleased with it now.

Another Estonian triangle of my own design. Lovely nupps all over, and this time, for a change, I choose a wide lace edging. Actually, this is blocked and finished, but I have more plans for this shawl, so If you return in a couple of weeks you'll se what I have in mind.

The CheerMom's KAL

Some of us Moms´, waiting when our daughters are training Cheer, have started a little KAL (Knit Along). It will be a shawl or a Möbius scarf which can be worn as a poncho, scarf, neckerchief or... A very versatile little thing. The chosen yarn is the lovely Rowan Kid Silk Haze (or equivalent about 215m/25g). The pattern, we haven't got a proper pattern, is just a few scribbled lines of instruction to follow. We are making a bias knit (stickas på skrådden).Two of us are using size 7mm needles, so it's a very quick and easy knit. Therefore I bought the whole KnitPro Rose special edition interchangeable needles. They are just wonderful when knitting the thin mohair yarn. I'm not sure I really needed new needles, but good equipment is essential isn't it?

Last year I knitted 12 shawls and I participated in the 10 Shawls in 2010 challenge. I won!!! very nice stitch markers from www.etsy.com/shop/TessYoungCreatives. Thanks a lot! They're lovely! and I consume lots of those :-)

OK, it was random prices though :-).

Packaging is everything :-)

I am a published designer

I am a published designer. Yes, I know, I published my own pattern on Ravelry :-) so it wasn't difficult at all. Well, writing a pattern is difficult. But, lately people have asked me over and over again to write a pattern. So I did. Now I hope they see that it is their fault that I have published it... I mean I hope they like it, because I did it for their sake... kind of. And mine, it was fun.

Keep on knitting my jewels!
