For something a little different (and I’ve been a bit pressed for time this week), I thought it would be fun to do a picture heavy post of shawls I knit before I started blogging. Shawls have been my favorite since I started knitting and tend to be the first place I try something new. If there’s one you’d like me to talk more about and provide a review of the yarn/pattern please comment which one below and I’ll write a full blog post! Also, please be understanding that I have improved my photography skills since I took most of these!
#1 – Bascilica Shawl
Yarn is Have You Any Wool Luxe Lace in the colorway Perfect Storm. Pattern is Basilica Shawl by Liz Capik. Lots and lots of beads.

#3 – Green Magpie Shawl

Yarn is handspun and the fiber was from Tomorrow Farm for the Once Upon a Time spin-a-long. Pattern was something I wrote and so wish I still had the notes for!
