Hello!! First, happy new year!!! May 2017 bring lots of knitting and joy to you. Second, you mentioned in a post Tolkien inspired lace shawls. You were most likely joking when you said you could do a whole post about them, but could you? That sounds so cool!!

Hi Anon! Happy New Year to you, as well!!

As requested, here is your post (if anyone knows of any other Tolkien inspired lace shawls or other patterns, please add them when you reblog).

I’ve never knitted an edge on something like this. I’ve certainly never knit a lace edge on to anything else.

When i reached this part of the pattern and it was all “yeah put aside ALL that entire thing you just knit and cast on 13 stitches on some DPNs” needless to say I was fuxking baffled to begin with.

BUT ITS ACTUALLY REALLY NICE! and it feels a bit like a magic trick how im suddenly knitting in another direction and just attaching it with a K2tog every other row.

Like, this is good. This LOOKS GOOD.

When I finish this shawl I reckon I deserve some sort of graduation out of ‘novice knitter’ ranks.


My darling has opened up her own shop, Reilynn’s Knits and Crafts, in which she sells handmade accessories, such as scarves, capes, shawls, wrist warmers and leg warmers. Combining knitting and crocheting, sewing by hand and adding little details such as buttons and leather clasps, each of these unique items is one of a kind. Please check out her shop! ^_^

I worked on my yellow scarf all weekend and actually ended up running out of yarn. Someone ages ago told me that knitting takes up less yarn than crochet but so far that has proven totally false. Maybe It’s because I’m using a tighter stitch? I dont know. Either way, until I get more yarn to finish that scarf I’m slowly working on this shawl with the yarn I dyed last summer. 

I’m really loving how in some places the colors pool!
