Bear is a big flirt and shawls


Greetings. Still feeling way sad about little Noah. Just a sad, sad thing. On to other things. Bear is such a big old flirt- it is unreal!!! Here he is trying to figure out how best to charm me so I can offer him a cookie or a piece of dehydrated liver. Hmmmm
In June, we will be going to a wedding, as I have mentioned before. I figure I need a cool looking pantsuit- maybe in that slinky stretchy polyester stuff -you know the kind that doesn't need any ironing and hides a multitude of sins (miracle stuff)- anyhow- I thought I would try to make a wrap/shawl. I have a skein of Helen's Lace (Lorna's Laces) in the silk/merino- about 1250 yards of lovely lace weight- in Gold Hill (sort of brick and mauve/pink and gold) Any suggestions for shawl patterns that are a bit on the bigger side (I can't stand skimpy)??????

Love the photo of bear. Not sure about the shawl though. If I think of something good I will let you know!

Ooh, there are so many shawl patterns. I guess I would check out Knitty, then Folk Shawls and Victorian Lace Today, those ought to keep you busy for awhile.

I've seen that look many times; Must. Have. Cookie. NOW! Gypsy has no patience.

How about AllTangledUp's Kiri Shawl and just keep going until you run out of yarn. Robyn

Yarn Harlot has a snow drop shawl.

How about Evelyn Clark's Flowerbasket Shawl? The large laceweight size calls for 1100-odd yards of yarn (I was just looking it up for myself!). I've just begun a pair of socks in that LL colourway; I love, love, love the colours. A shawl will be magnificent!
