Now my plans are all topsy turvy

Hey, looky what I got in the mail the other day!

Once upon a time, Alison had a contest on her blog, and I won! Yay me. And the prize was some of Alison's own Yarnscape yarn! Even more yay!

I was given my choice of colours, and settled on "Meadow," a greeny goldy meadow-like colourway!

This is her yarn called Flow, a 50/50 merino/silk blend, with a whopping 450 meters per 50 grams!

Two skeins is enough for Muir, or I could do Cold Mountain (if I just made it quite a bit smaller), a Lattice Lace Wrap (.pdf available in the sidebar), a lovely one called Gothic Night Shawl that I once found on Ravelry but now seems to have disappeared -- when I clicked the link I got some half-naked ladies and a 404 message.

I would like to make a Pi shawl (there are some snazzy new ideas on Ravelry) but they seem to need around 1200-1500 meters.

I would like to just take my gabillions of stitch patterns and make my own.

For now I will just admire, but soon I think I will succumb and at least wind one of the skeins into a ball, and then I might just swatch something... Watch this space! And do feel free to point me to other shawl patterns -- I only have 26 in my favourites on Rav...


  1. Alceste.
    Any of Asa's patterns for scarves or shawls would be good.

  2. All of those look lovely.

    The Gothic shawl has links on its page both with and without a typo. If you know which you clicked last time, try the other one.

  3. That yarn looks yummy!

  4. oh that yarn is lovely - can't wait to see what you decide to make!
