Four of a Kind and a Faroette

     Knitting on the alpaca Highland Triangle Shawl is like visiting with an old friend.   I've knit it three times before.  Each time I've used a different weight yarn, a DK for the original, a plumy sport- weight Scottish yarn, and Gossamer alpaca, which is lighter than lace weight.   All three have used the pattern as written, with just a needle size change to suit the yarn.  Such different shawls and each one my "favorite".  I'm sure the fourth version, the revival piece that is on the needles now, will fit right in.

And speaking of shawls, the Faroette Shawl pattern is now up in the Ravelry shop.  It's a play on the  traditional Faroese shaping.  Just a little bit of fun for your summer knitting and since Faroette uses just 500 yards you can knit these up for gifts in a wink.

Now back to  the needles!
