Knitted ones at least. NOT the ones I have to rake. Sadly it is prime leaf-raking time around the cul-de-sac.
Since the Estonian stole is a being uncooperative, I've turned to a more soothing evening knit.
I bought two skeins of Brooks Farm Acero while I was at SAFF. I walked through the booth and looked at it twice before caving. It was, after all, in my most favorite deep, dark green.
I wanted a rectangular shawl and definitely something with leaves, so I came up with this one called Lacy Leaves Shawl. Name pretty much says it all, don't you think? The pattern shows it in 5 shades of Blue Sky Alpaca. That is a sportweight and Acero is listed as fingering weight. I'm using a size 7 needle which is what I used the last time I knit with Acero.
Pattern is from the book "Knit Ponchos, Wraps & Scarves" and there is not one single project listed in Ravelry. No one likes but me??
This is my first time knitting anything lengthwise. I have NO feel for what the finished size might be. However, the knitting is just so relaxing I figure if it doesn't work out, I'll rip it all out, reball the yarn, and have just as much fun knitting something else.
