An Inspirational Knit

April 27, 2010 at 6:26 pm 3 comments

I have (knitting) nuts of steel. I really do. I’m not afraid of anything. But, when I took Stahman’s Shawls and Scarves out of the library, I scared the pants off myself.

Today’s challenge for KnitCroBlo is to blog about a pattern or project I aspire to. And hoo-boy, do I aspire to knit one of these masterpieces. I love, love, love a Faroese shawl (one with shaping that wraps around the body), but they’re big, and when knit in an all-over pattern, involve some fairly complicated shaping beyond just reading your knitting.

There are OTHER Faroese shawls that are less complicated, and I love with equal passion (Cheryl Oberle’s Stora Dimun comes to mind), but I worry that , like everyone has one good novel in them, I only have one giant shawl in me.

Go ahead. I dare you. Noodle around Ravelry for some favourited shawls from this book. They’ll take your breath away.
