Cascade Shawl

Blogged under crochet and knitting,Projects in Progress by Tammy on Wednesday 12 September 2012 at 12:27 pm

Nicole from the Positively Knitting podcast is running a “Sacred Skein Craft Along.” By “sacred” she is talking about skeins of yarn that we horde because they are too good to use or you are looking for that perfect almighty pattern before you break it open. This happens to crafters in general. I used to be really bad about buying gorgeous beads and then not using them because I was afraid the finished piece would not do them justice. I think I have gotten much better about not hording the good stuff when it comes to my craft projects, but I still felt the urge to participate in Nicole’s craft along.

Pictured is my progress so far on the Cascading Stylish Shawl pattern by Michelle B. of It is a $1.99 pattern available through She uses Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock yarn, which is fingering-weight. So I decided to crack open my fingering-weight Chroma yarn in the Guppy colorway. I’m loving it so far. I think this is going to be a gift, but we will see if I am able to part with it when I’m done. The total finished length is 68 inches, and I’ve only got 9 inches done, which means there is a good chance I won’t finish this by the end of the month and be able to submit to Nicole’s craft along. However, her idea did urge me to get started on this and use this yarn that I have admittedly waited to use until I found this perfect pattern.
