Ideas running...

through my head.

My fascination with shawls is neverending but recently I've been intrigued by smaller simpler versions.

While at Tangled Yarns recently I picked up these two beautiful skeins of Handmaiden both in the colourway Smoke but one is Silk Bamboo and the other Silk Linen.

I can see the bamboo as the body of the scarf in a simple stitch such as garter or varient there of and the linen as the border again in a simple garter stitch pattern.

The following arrived today courtesy of the postman and the wonderful emtnestr on eBay - 5 lovely skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in the Baltic Sea colourway.

Again I see a triangular shawl/scarf with a very simply body of garter stitch and a garter stitch lace edge.

Well I'm off to swatch.

Keep smiling :-)
