textured shawl

I wanted a summer shawl in a neutral shade to wear to the movies, to restaurants and for car trips and this shawl knit with Sublime Organic Cotton, shade #96, is exactly what I had in mind.

DH took this shot before Blocking! I'm quite pleased with it before the soaking and blocking process....for sure, it will be Great once finished.

Here she is blocking! I think a movie would be nice tomorrow evening, You Think? I mean she will be dried by tomorrow and for sure will want to get out.

Are you familiar with the Textured/Recipe shawl? It's pretty cool. There are rows of stockinette stitches with lace patterns of your selection to fill in between the standard stockinette rows........told you it was a cool idea!

My shawl is made up of the Textured Stitch, Knitted Open Work Stitch, Purse Stitch, and Garter Stitch. Check out more project details in Ravelry... KnittingDivaGirl!

Anyhoo, I used my Vogue knitting book to select two of the lace patterns. Of all the knitting books in my library (and I have an embarrasing many) this is by far my most valuable and beloved read. I cannot tell you how many times I have pulled this publication for information, help, has truly been worth every penny.

This week-end I should have shots of the finished piece! I *Heart* this shawl!
