Due to some health issues, I wasn´t able to go to Denmark this weekend, so I decided I needed to cast on something new. (And shop yarn online…) I have knitted this pattern before, and I know I really enjoy it, so there is no way this will bum me out further! My pattern of choice is the Whispering Pines Shawl by A Homespun House and this time I´m adding beads!
I´m yet again using Wollmeise Sockenwolle 80/20 Twin, and this time I´ve decided to use the colorway “Petite Poison nr 5 dark” which is a dark and rich purple. This shawl is going to be a Christmas present for my boyfriends sister, and I think she will love the color, and I know she likes the shawl because she commented on the one I gave my mother for Christmas. My plan is to put beads on the edging. I´ve never knitted with beads before, so that will be fun! I´m using 4mm/US6 Addi needles like I´ve done before. I did 4 repeats of the lace pattern on both of my previous shawls, and I´m planning on doing that on this as well. The bigger the better!
My previous Whispering Pines turned out like this for those of you who are wondering:
It´s so simple, and so pretty! No wonder I adore this pattern!
