12.1.30 - Clubbing is fun...

Stephen West has a Shawl club.  I joined the pattern only version club so I could use up some stash.

I just finished the second pattern released - Arroway.

Choosing two worsted weight yarns from stash that I had struggled to find projects for - turns out this pattern was fast and fun.  Stripes really are addictive and make the knitting compelling.  The challenge in this pattern was the "Flying Geese" edging - fair isle in both garter (background ) and St St (geese).  I never did find a way to trap the yarn so left the floats long and loose.  In the end it was worth the hassle - love the result.

Pattern : Arroway
Yarn: Berroco Vintage -Cast Iron
Berroco Boboli  - color # 5320
Needles: Size 8

This worsted weight shawl has been very usable.  Worn several times over sweater as a extra layer in our mild winter, it has been just right.  Great way to use up stash of any weight, a blast to knit - recommend this pattern for something different for your wardrobe.

Reverse side - floats
This is my kind of clubbing.....


  1. My kind of colors! Would love to see a pic of the wrong side...

  2. I have yet (gasp) to make a shawl for me! I don't wear shawls but I am guessing that is because I don't have any (you think? ... ) Maybe that can be corrected in 2012? Maybe?

    Beautiful work.
