Then the day ended with the first knitting guild meeting after the summer holidays. The talented Anna Dalvi gave a talk on her new book Shaping Shawls. This book is a must have for any lace knitter. It provides patterns for knitting her shawls, and information on how to create your own design. What I love so much about her designs is the fact that she takes folktales and translates them into her work. There is always an interesting story associated with each piece.http://www.knitandknag.com/the-blog/
Kelly, the owner of Just Knitting will be carrying Anna's book as of tomorrow!
And what have I been knitting today? The Black Veil from VAMPIRE KNITS, out of Patons Bamboo and Silk. A little something to wear when out under the cover of night.
