Quite a few projects to share with you today! The first photo is of the Abalone Lace Shawlette, now blocked and modeled by my youngest.
The second photo shows another version of the same lace shawlette, but in a lighter weight Noro DK yarn. Even on the loom, the stitch pattern appears much more open in the DK. This is a great example of how a change in yarn may reshape a pattern entirely. I get a kick out of how the lace points look as they appear on the loom.
This third photo is another lesson in change the yarn, change the pattern. I'm making a "Sunflower Spring Shawlette". When I wrote the pattern last year, it was for the lovely Tencelino (merino wool, tencil blend) that Helen Jacobs-Grant dyed for me. It was made from 2 strands of sock yarn held together for a dk weight. This time, I'm using another hand dyed yarn, but in all wool, worsted weight. The stitch pattern is much harder to see, although the shawlette is looming up very nicely. It will need blocking, and to accommodate the blocking size increase, I decreased the pattern from 33 to 27 pegs.
The last photo is a little ruffled scarf with the working title "Ivory Shell Scarf". It is made from the new Knit Pick's yarn, Chroma worsted, in the Galapagos color. This is such a fun scarf to loom. I often make scarves when I'm testing a new technique, and this will be a test for a loomed ruffle edging. The long color changes in the yarn work perfectly for this pattern.
