I have two skeins of Berroco Flicker just begging to be made into a shawl – but I’m picky about shawls, and usually prefer triangle-shaped ones. What’s you’re favorite one to knit? It can be any yarn weight; I can easily modify it. I just want one with an attractive design, because beautiful yarn deserves to be knit up into something beautiful.

Quick commissioned hat. Original pattern & color charts by me.
This is gorgeous!
In a knitter’s tragedy of grand proportions, Shibui has discontinued their sock yarn. One of my local yarn shops was having a closeout on their remaining stock for 25% off, so I went and grabbed the wasabi (green), dragonfly (blue), and honey (brown) colorways in the photo. I had already purchased the mulberry pink one a while ago. It is SO cushy and soft, and the colors are GORGEOUS; the photo above hardly does them justice at all, and it seems that no amount of editing can get all colors correct in the same photo. The green is so much richer in person, and the honey is much less reddish than is coming across here. I unwound them all last night and started on a shawl.
If your LYS carries it, I highly recommend that you snatch up a couple hanks before they’re gone.
Okay, so I need the opinion of other tumblr knitters.
All of these patterns come in one eBook available on Ravelry. (You can find that here.) I’m getting the one with the arrows no matter what. I came across it when I was looking for some good, interesting, and unique stranded knitting projects, and I completely fell in love with it. That pattern alone is $4.00, but the entire eBook is $9.99, so: do I purchase all six patterns even though I may never knit any of them other than the one with the arrows? I’m leaning toward yes, but I need your thoughts. What would you do?
Finished this shawl (Unruly by Linda Wilgus) last week. That’s Linda in the photo above because I’ve yet to block and photograph mine, but I’m hoping to get that done soon. Photos to come!
