My version of Nightshift Shawl. I used 1 ball each Akari #5 & #7. The original shawl is knit from the cast on few stitches to the other end. With the Akari, I knew the striping would get narrower and narrower but I wanted more color blocking. So I worked until top edge was 36" wide then I decreased instead of increasing until back to the original number of stitches. Looks like sand and surf. I love how soft and cozy the yarn is. Probably could use a better picture as sun came out when I was trying to shoot it. Pattern is $7, yarn is $40 a ball.

Nightshift shawl knit in 1 ball each Akari #5 & #7.

Christmas is a'coming an' the goose is getting fat knitting Christmas stockings. The large stocking is a Googleheim stocking Nutcracker green background, 30 designs available.

The lower right stocking is from the Mini Christmas Socks booklet by Nancy Lindberg $4.00 and knit with Dale Freestyle yarn, the smaller socks are playing around with different patterns using the same pattern, think these might be nice for money or small gifts.

Time to start thinking about Christmas!

I am not a shawl person but there are so many wonderful shawls and I could not not knit this one! MarinJa Knits' Papillion pattern is $14. and has many variations for butterfly and moth styles. A fun knit this summer, but does involve a lot of counting...don't think it is perfect but it does not seem to matter!

Papillion shawl knit in 2 balls of Perth #106 and 1 ball of Nordlys #903.
