Olympian Shawl

The 2016 Summer Olympics at Rio end today and so do the 2016 Ravellenic Games. My Olympian effort was to combine two of the biggest crafting events of the summer: dye some woolspin it during Tour de Fleece and knit it during the Ravellenics.

  • On Ravelry: Layla
  • Pattern: Layla Beaded Shawl by Deby Lake, free download on Ravelry
  • Yarn: Autumn’s End, 455 m/498 yd of handspun Corriedale
  • Needles: 4.5 mm Cubics
  • Mods: 8 lace and garter-stitch sections, finished with 12 more rows of garter stitch, added beads only on every second picot on the bind off.

Another knit doily - this time with beads! Pattern is from translated from German book “ Ich Kann Handarbeiten” published in 1911.

Next to my first doily for size comparison, up on the wall, and lastly hanging in our kitchen window (I’m thinking this’ll be it’s home). :))
