Ten shawls in 2010

In this first year of the ten-ties, I'm quite keen to try to knit ten shawls. This is definitely an aspirational goal and I'm happy to include the shawl I started last year. I'm really enjoying shawls at the moment, and they are perfect for all the fingering weight yarn I have collected for sock knitting.

Here's what I think I'd like to do:

  1. Feather & Fan Comfort Shawl in VP Daphne 
    • I'm 2/3s through this one having started in December last year
    • A bit stalled as its boring now and there's no finishing chart
  2. Haruni in Wollmeise Ballerina
    • I've only been working on this for five days but I am going really well
    • Halfway through the second out of four repeats of Chart A
    • With Chart B being an exciting and beautiful biggie I'm feeling very motivated to get there
    • I love the almost single ply nature of the Wollmeise, beautiful stitch definition and no splits
  3. Northern Lights
    • I love how this looks but it maybe a bit boring and I'm not sure if the yarn I have has a long enough repeat
    • Yarn options
  4. Swallowtail Shawl
  5. Adamas
  6. Percy Shawl
  7. Something else?
  8. Entomology
  9. Ishbel?
  10. Gail?
I may come back and re-post this list with editing later on, but good motivation to do it now.

sounds like a nice list of shawl I definitely recommend knitting gail, and you have reminded me I totally have an adamas on the go somehwere... hmmm really must find that. Also I could dye you up a yarn with long colour repeats for that other shawl if you were interested!
