Knitting & Unravel

It's been a really frantic couple of weeks and blogging went to the bottom of my to do list. I've managed to fit in quite a bit of knitting between magazine deadlines and workshops. After finishing a a couple of projects I decided I needed to cast on two new projects.

For a while now I've wanted to design an Orenburg inspired shawl using the construction method I teach in my Orenburg lace workshop. I'll be teaching my Orenburg lace knitting workshop at Handmade Studios, near Portsmouth on 26 May. I'll be back at Handmade Studios on 7 April for a Lace Improvers workshop (contact the shop for more details on both workshops).

I'm using Navia Alpakka which is a pure alpaca lace weight yarn. It's a delicate, light as air yarn and I'm really enjoying knitting with it. I'm adding beads. The construction method is really interesting in the way the edging is knitted on along with the shawl.
I decided I needed an easier shawl on the needles too. I've wanted to knit a shawl in the Lavender and Dark Grey Navia Bummull for a few weeks now. I love knitting with this cotton blend yarn. It's lovely and light. 
This weekend I'll be at Unravel in Farnham, Surrey. I'll have selection of patterns, beautiful, colourful yarns, beads and Tattysquawk shawl pins. I picked up 20 new pins today but I didn't have time to take any photos before it got dark. I wish I had as the pins are just beautiful.

If you're coming to Unravel, do stop by and say hello. We'll be in the Barley Room. 

Next week, I'll have a new pattern release and a tutorial for you.
