April Showers Spring Shawl Exchange

UPDATED!* Patterns have been chosen!  Let's get to work!  If you are a prolific knitter and would like to make more than one shawl you are welcome to!  Also, feel free to invite your friends ( I will share this with the Polycrafters as well)

Here is the idea.  You knit a shawl based on one of the three patterns chosen (I know I said 2 before, but I liked 3 of the suggestions) with any nice quality yarn and bring to exchange at the meetup.

How they are exchanged is TBD (white elephant most likely)- No wrapping is required. Please bring yarn care tags & instructions

Cost: Pattern & Yarn should be approximately $30

Pattern 1-Hitchhiker by Martina Behm- Pattern is ~$4 on Ravelry
(is a very easy knit and easy to add your own flair to)

Pattern 2- Summerflies by Donna Griffin- Pattern is ~$1.85 on Ravelry.
(looks like a great summer shawl)

Pattern 3- Bitterroot by Rosemary (Romi) Hill- Pattern is free on Ravelry
(looks like the most complicated of the 3)

Happy Knitting!

    I'll be a little late. Having a birthday beer at rogue prior to heading over.

    I will be late per usual due to Hillsboro commute. My concern is that tonight's bind off and blocking plan was ruined by a 2+ hour drive home due to overturned semi truck on the highway. Yeah.... I hope to finish that tomorrow and quickly block but.... It may be unblocked or just lightly. Eep!

      No Problem Sara- We will just be hanging out and knitting until everyone arrives and is ready to go :)

    I'm probably going to be a bit late (closer to 7) if that's okay. My shawl is done and I'm planning to block it tonight!

    I like the challenge of finishing something. I feel more productive when I have a deadline

  • Laura C.

    I like the suggested pattern #1. Let's do it!!!

    Okay- so what is holding everyone back from Signing up?
    Is it that the patterns are not solid yet?
    Is it the time frame- Is it too short?
    Is it the cost of the project?

    Please give me some feedback...
    Thank you!

    I like the idea, I don't know that I have enough knitting time to complete it for April...

    I've only ever made one shawl, but it was this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/summer-flies

    It knits up really fast and looks a lot more complicated than it is, I think. Plus the pattern is freeee!

    February 11, 2013

    • Liz

      Oh damn, just looked again. It *used* to be free. Still it's just under $2 and that ain't bad.
