A New Shawl

A New Shawl, originally uploaded by Folkcat.

I’ve had two main knitting projects lately. One is the never-ending run of cotton blankets for the rats. The other is this entre-lac shawl. I’m knitting it from the point up so I can get it as big as I want w/o guessing. The yarn is Noro Kureyon Sock, color 229.

Dear Jen,

I have been a lurker on your blog forever. We met at the Fiber Studio years ago. We were students in the class for beginning spinners. You were at one end of the table and I was opposite of you. I had a bit of prior experience with a spindle and some romney roving. I enjoyed the class and the exposure to the wheels. You have a Lendrum wheel, right? I purchased a Schacht and a Jensen 30-inch production wheel. You love your rats. I have read every story. I love my cats. I have two above average Maine Coon Cats. My Mamie chases her little toys and retrieves them and drops them at my feet. I am totally devoted and can understand your love for your ratties! Just wanted to say hello.

Knit on!
