or Throughtheloops Summer Shawl Knitalong

I have joined a shawl knit along this summer! I've not knitted many shawls before, but I have faved a lot on Ravelry. And when I found this KAL, I decieded to join, Throughtheloop has so many beatiful shawls.

Cladonia shawl

I had a beatiful skein of Chili Gredelin sock yarn (Marilyn), that I won on Annepålandet's blog this winter. A beautiful semisolid blue-green, amazingly soft, which I paired with some thin alpaca from my stash.

Cladonia shawl

The pattern was easy to follow, very well written. Had to get new stitch markers, as I did not have 17. Found these on Epla (Norwegian version of Etsy).


I'm off to make another of shawl, now. Happy knitting! (It's not to late to join the KAL, btw. If you're on Ravelry, that is. See here .)

Tori, this is beautiful. I´ve faved that shawl my self. I recently discovered the world of shawls - and I´m starting on the bird shawl from Christel Seyfarth soon.

Shawls are so versatile - but we don´t have a tradition for it here in Norway. But that time is over now.... LOL!! Happy knitting!!

Veldig flott sjal.
Jeg har veldig mange flotte sjal i Ravelrykøen min jeg også, skulle gjerne ha strikket mange av dem, men akkurat nå har jeg så mye annet halvferdig. Innimellom fullføringen av de halvferdige prosjektene mine, skal jeg nyte synet av de mange flotte sjalene dere strikker i sommer. Takk for tips!

That is beautiful. I love your color combination. And what a good excuse to buy cute stitch markers.

Flott sjal! Jeg vurderte også å melde meg på, for jeg liker TTLs oppskrifter veldig godt - men jeg innså min begrensning. Jeg driver fortsatt og graver i UFO-haugen min...
Det ble jo veldig vellykket å kombinere Chili G-garnet med alpakka! Så bra at garnet kom til nytte - også så fin nytte!
Fortsatt god sommer!

Et aldeles nydelig sjal som også står på min liste. Mønsteret ligger klart, men så var det dette med tiden og alle de andre prosjektene som ligger der også. Ravelry er et "farlig" sted!
