Erebor Lace Shawl Knitting Pattern 5

Erebor Lace Shawl pattern

My new design was inspired by the Dwarven artwork in Peter Jackon’s Hobbit films, which were, of course, based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel of the same name. Unfortunately, I still don’t have great pictures of this, but as I don’t know when I will be able to remedy this, I...

Luna Moth Shawl

I may have mentioned before I love knitting lace. Love it. I get tremendous satisfaction out of carefully making sure that each individual decrease and yarn over is in exactly the right place. I love seeing the pattern unfold and then there’s the moment of blocking where it transforms from...
