Following the discussions earlier in the Let's Just Visit forum, I thought I'd start a thread for a Forest Canopy Shawl KAL.

If you'd like to knit a different shawl, I'm sure that we can still bounce ideas off each other.

I'm planning to start this at the weekend (it's a long weekend here), after I've finished hubby's socks.

I've just wound a skein of gorgeous Yarn Yard Lochan in Watersilk (pale blues and greens) into a yarn cake, and I'm looking forward to starting.

I am definately in on this K.A.L Very Happy
I shall be using an Angora mix yarn that I bought on my last trip to Turkey which is equivelant to a UK 4ply and 4.5mm bamboo straight knitting needles.
EDITED TO ADD


The yarn is in shades of pinks, lilacs and purples.
"Alize" Angora Gold

I just searched for it on ravelry and it turns out it is a DK weight but I am still using original needles I intende to use.

I'd love to join in but the shawl I have planned is not an. FCS but this one

A feather and fan type one. I'm doing a smaller version because Mum would be swamped by a big one and it might get caught up in things.

Can I still knit-a-long with you all?

Of course you can, Yvonne. That shawl looks lovely.

Kath, I think you're right in thinking 4 ply - the yardage looks higher than most sock yarns, so I wouldn't have thought it was DK.

I'm going to try the Forest Canopy Shawl. I'm a little nervous to do a knit-a-long because I knit so slowly; but I think the peer pressure might be encouraging. So....count me in.

Joy had better be ready with blocking tips....her shawls are always blocked to perfection.

I would also like to join in to but I'm planning on another Lucinda Shells Shawl if I can find just the right shades.

Such lovely shawls. I shall be watching this one from the sidelines, as I have way too much OTN as it is. I am eager to see what everyone comes up with, though.

I'd love to join. I will certainly appreciate the help I am anticipating.

I rec'd the PDF file of the pattern (along with the On The Vine lace scarf Razz probably should be a shame on me. Smile ) today.

I nabbed my mom and we went to my LYS. I picked out some cotton in a beautiful salmony color. They actually had a shawl there as an example, and it had worked up beautifully. (I never would have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. Shocked Cool ) The pattern talks about the different types of fiber and that cotton may have to be blocked after each wash. Oh dear, I guess I'll have to keep this for me.

Joy, the Damson Shawl looks very intersting.

Joy and NK nice shawls both. There are so many nice patterns out there that it's difficult to settle on one.

I think I could knit nothing but the shawls I like till the day I die and still not have done them all - even if I can knit till I'm a hundred.
