From Garter stitch to lace…

Recently I have only wanted to knit simple things, garter stitch, stocking stitch, moss stitch was the most adventurous knitting I was doing.

This week I picked up my scarf I was making from Victorian Lace Today and finished it.  I immediately started the shoulder shawl in a Cherry Leaf pattern.  The simple knits have lost their appeal for the moment; give me something with a pattern in it.

Here is the finished scarf:

It has lace ends that are knitted sideways and the centre is a simple dropstitch pattern.

Here is the new WIP:

The pattern was for 4ply on a 4.5mm needle.  I decided to use 8ply on a 5mm to give a more substantial, winter weight shawl.

The colour is actually red.  It looks a bit pink in the photo.
