Damson Shawl

April 06, 2011

I love my Damson Shawl by Isolde Teague. Very easy and intuitive pattern that you can memorize pretty quickly. I used one skein of Tosh Sock (so lovely!) in Caligraphy and ran out of it just at the end. I used a smidge of Malabrigo Sock in Playa left over from my Celery Cardigan to finish it off.I love the way it turned out, the little eyelet lace border is so pretty. It's a great travel project and I have my eye out for a skein of Malabrigo Sock in a bright color so I can make it again. I think Ysolde Teague is a knitting genius and her instructions make her projects a joy to knit.

On my way out the door to play nine holes of golf. I am way better at knitting than I am a golfing. Way, wayyyy better.

  1. I have been looking at that shawl. But ended up choosing the "Aestlight Shawl". I have some handdyed lilac to use for my daughter's Weddding in November.
    Nice job on your shawl!

  2. It's so lovely! I keep thinking I would like to knit a shawl with a contrasting trim like that.

    I really enjoy both tennis and golf ~ enjoy your time on the links!
