For sale for a cause: Peony

For more detail on what I’m doing this year, read this post first.

Update: This shawl has been sold for $50 donation to the Enchantment Theater. Thanks, Ellen!

If you get into lace knitting, sooner or later you have to try a Herbert Niebling. They’re intricate and very different than other lace styles. This shawl is an adaptation of one his designs by Hayley Tsang Sather. All-in-all, 10 different charts to follow and took me about 3 weeks to complete.

The yarn is a lace weight merino wool and silk blend that I bought in Massachusetts a couple of years ago. I really like how subtle the color variations are. Feels like “morning” to me.


If interested, please leave a comment. Minimum bid of $50. Don’t forget to mention the cause that you’d like the money to go towards! That’s the best part. 🙂

For Sale for a Cause: Forest Nymph

For an update of what I’m doing this year, read this post.

$400 bid for this and the funds will go to Everytown for Gun Safety.

The pattern is ‘Forest Nymph,’ another beautiful design by Alla Borisova. Not quite as large as other shawls I’ve done, but still fits on the shoulders comfortably. Completed on February 24. The yarn is 100% merino wool from Undercover Otter, a yarn company based in Amsterdam. I so love this color (named ‘Space Chicken’). Fun to knit something this cheery in drab February.

For Sale for a Cause: Greenleaf

If you want background on what I’m doing this year, read this post first.

No doubt, this was one of my favorite projects to date. The yarn and pattern worked together beautifully. The pattern is Greenleaf by Anna Victoria. The yarn is Twister Fiber Art Arial Evolution in the Mirage colorway. 100% merino.


IMG_0888Last time I used this yarn, I had too much left over and missed the final color transition. This time, I did an extra repeat of the yellow section and ended up a bit too close for comfort. Knitters call this “yarn chicken” and I’m happy to have won that round! This is all I had left over after binding off. So every bit of this beautiful yarn’s transitions are included.

Closed on 3/2 with $100 to David Sheldrock Wildlife Trust. Thanks, Carlea!
