Ok, not that I've even picked up a pair of needles in like months. Seriously, it's getting really bad! But I really need to begin to knit my wedding shawl. I'm so intrigued by Print o' the Wave, but I think it's way too complicated for me. It's so gorgeous, but when I see the words "grafting" and "perpendicular border"--I just know that it'll make me crazy. In addition to actually being able to wear this shawl, I need it to not break my brain too.
So, of course, the problem is that a search of all knitted shawls really brings up a lot of overly fussy, lacy very Stevie Nicks-looking items (though, I could to worse than looking like Ms. Nicks, but still...). I'm thinking I like the Daphne stole from French Girl. It looks lovely and really simple, which is good. Though, I wouldn't be able to use my originally intended yarn: Kid Silk Haze. But I'm wondering if I could use Kid Classic. On this page though I can view the color swatches and it seem like they don't make it in a sort of fuschia-y/magenta-y color. I'm really trying to get to shown here.
Let's say I go with French Girl. . . and NEED this color in some yarn that will work with the pattern. Any suggestions for yarn? Anyone wanna knit on Wednesday?
