Down The Garden Path


I’ve another shawl on the go and really enjoying this one.

It’s crochet and a pattern that caught my eye some time ago. “Garden Path” by Lily Go. This is one of those patterns that I think will do a lot to improve die-hard knitters opinion of crochet. Lily’s patterns are incredibly well written for both the chart and the written instruction fans.

It’s fine, light and at first glance, resembles the traditional knitted shawls that so many of us love. I’m working it in Zephyr Wool-Silk 2/18, a beautiful 2-ply lace and it’s one from the stash. I’m using it single strand and not doubled as the pattern calls for, so have downsized my hook.

Loving the Tulip Etimo hooks! All the comfort of good ole reliable Clovers but with a slimmer shape that works with my “delicate” hands ;).

“Knit Night” happened at my place again yesterday evening with my BFF and I managed to get to the 17th row of this, in between talking. Last Tuesday was the official reinstatement of Knit Night – fondly known as “Stitch ‘N Bitch” in my neck of the woods – how could I refuse a request from DD to learn how to crochet? 🙂

I lucked out on a Verdant Gryphon shop update and snagged a couple skeins of “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” colourway on the Codex base – how apropos!

Hoping to have it soon to share a little Yarn Pr0n!

  1. I too bought yarn yesterday. Theoretically I’m not doing that right now, but I’ve been looking out for this yarn and colorway for about six months. I caved 😛
