The Clover Chain shawl

The original Clover Chain shawl, in baby alpaca fingering weightTotally outshone by those flowers below taking up all the light in the room. Which amuses me to no end.

I really do need to get my pattern photos up on Ravelry. There–if I say it out loud, it’ll happen. Harness that peer pressure and put it to work, right? This is the Clover Chain shawl (rather scrunched up at the bottom here) in the book, done in baby alpaca fingering weight, but something like Jaggerspun Zephyr laceweight and going down three needle sizes would work too, just, you’d get a much smaller-around V-necked shawl that would be good for tying in front rather than a throw-over-your-shoulder wrap.

And, well, yes, for those who have asked–what name could I possibly have used there but spindyeknit. And I’m sitting here lecturing my fingers not to add a .com after that word.

The flowers are lovely, but they do not outshine such a beautiful shawl!

I’m currently working on getting my rav “store” working, but converting to pdfs is holding me back. Not that I don’t know how, I just haven’t done it.

The shawl is very pretty! As well as the flowers. I just ran the batteries out on my camera, again, taking stash pics. My next ravelry chore, entering more books into my library.

Your shawl is very pretty. Later this spring I’ll start on one of the patterns in your book. I’m glad you included some easy ones.

That shawl is impossible to out-shine! Lovely. I miss my Fredfoot and can’t wait to return to it once these gifts are done!

Your shawl is beyond lovely, the colour suits you very well! I’ve been reading up about your designs :^D

Yes, the blooms look as though they sucked all the light and are sending it back out again, astounding!

Yes, you definitely need to get your pics on Ravelry.

The shawl is just beautiful, and I like the name of it, too!

The flowers look nearly neon; they’re so bright!
