A Summer KAL

Ever since I finished my Fade shawl, I’ve had a marvelous time knitting on other things. I’ve got a pair of socks almost done, I made some progress on my Pride shawl, and I’ve cast on two new shawls. One of them is a fun summer KAL for Under the Olive Tree Knits, a one-skein shawl pattern named the Sun Glitter Shawl. I picked out some new-ish yarn from my stash, Less Traveled Concorde in Lagoon, and have been loving this pattern!

  1. I don’t need another knitting project… but I have some sparkly glitter yarn that might be perfect for this KAL (depending on yardage). I think I’ll have to go check it out! I love knitting lace shawls in the summer. Something about the blocking process goes really well with sunshine in my mind.

      • It’s not often cold enough on summer evenings for lace shawls from fingering weight, but I can sometimes wear my laceweight ones. I love dressing up a simple black dress with a hand knit shawl, though. Especially if it’s sparkly. 😉
