If you’re “born” on the same day to the same parent, that makes you twins. These two shawls were released today on Ravelry. I’m the mama.
First born is Scrivener, a wide, shallow garter crescent in two sizes. There’s lace knitting in there, but also knitted lace. The difference, you ask? Lace knitting has patterning on one side with rest rows in between (for this one, it’s just knit the WS rows). Knitted lace has patterning on both the right and wrong sides of the work. It makes it a bit trickier, but much more ethereal.
I’ve done this one in Hazel Knits Artisan Sock, a lovely “big wheel” that I bought at the sadly, now defunct Gauge & Tension shop in Brooklyn.
Scrivener‘s younger sister is Hither Hills. This one has garter stripes in (mostly) 2 colors, with a third-color stripe thrown in there strategically. The stripes alternate in sections with lace, followed by a little picot edging.
Hither Hills is made in the lovely Quince & Co. Tern, a new silk/wool favorite for me. The three colors, Driftwood, Barnacle and Rose Quartz, make a beautiful brown/green-tinged brown/pink combination.
As with all parents, I love them both equally. You can purchase them both on Ravelry. And if you put both in your cart at the same time, one will be yours free until 7/10/17.
