Violet Shawlette

violet shawlette

pattern: Clementine Shawlette by Michele Rose Orne in Interweave Knits Spring 2007
yarn: Wollmeise Sockenwolle (100% wool) in Veilchen (Violet) 125g
needles: Addi lace circs 3,75mm


comments: My new Addi Lace needles and the Wollmeise sock yarn was a match made in heaven. Knitting this shawl was pure joy. The finished shawlette - hmmm, I don't know. I love the colour, but I have doubts with those little thingies in the ends. Anyway, this will be a gift for my mother, so she'll have to find out how to wear it!

kommentit: uudet pitsi-Addini ja Wollmeisen sukkalanka olivat kuin luodut toisilleen. Tämän työn neulominen oli todella nautinnollista. Valmis huivi on kauniin värinen, mutta nuo päiden härpäkkeet vähän oudoksuttavat. No, onneksi tämä menee lahjaksi äidille, eli minun ei tarvitse pähkäillä että miten niitä asettelisi!

Punaiset Project Spectrum-sukat ovat jo hyvässä vauhdissa. Itse asiassa ensimmäinen ehti jo valmistuakin. Lanka on Lorna's Lacen sukkalanka ja aivan ihana neulottavaa. (En ole aiemmin kokeillut). Harmi vaan, että tässä punaisessa sävyssä väri vaihtelee todella vähän. Tuskin maltan odottaa, että pääsen iskemään kynteni muihin väreihin! (Siis kaupassa - kotoa niitä ei valitettavasti löydy).

I've started (and already finished the first one) my red Project Spectrum socks. This is the first time I'm knitting with Lorna's Laces sock yarn and I have to say that it really is a pleasure. Too bad there's very little tone variation in this hue, I can't wait to try out some of the other semi solid colours!

Oh, how beautiful! I love the color of your mom's new shawl!

I didn't notice the 'thingies' at the ends on flickr.
I see what you mean though..are they meant to be tied together?
Anyway it's still lovely!
And you are too a fast knitter..look you're already onto another pair of socks.

I think your mom will adore the shawl, however she chooses to wear it. I like the way the colorway works in the lace.

Tuon Wollmeisen värit ovat upeat! Minäkin ihmettelin noita päitä lehdessä. Saisikohan ne vedettyä esim. jostain välistä läpi tms.?

The shawl is so lovely! I can't think of a better match for that yarn!

The new red socks are outstanding!

Wow, your knitting is amazing. I love the violet shawl. And the red socks. BUT I was most intrigued by the beaded socks. What an amazing idea, beaded socks. I had never thought of it, and I've never seen beaded sock patterns anywhere. Thanks for showing them off. They're great. Well done you.

They are both lovely. I like the little ends of the shawlette.
BTW, what is that sock pattern?

wow ... the shawl is stunning! i love the crispness and variation. i have not tried sock yarn for shawls (yet) ... probably because i can't stop knitting socks.
i just knitted up a lorna's laces sock too ... and i love the semi-solids ... though, as you said, there isn't much variation in the shade i used either.
