Iceleaves Shawl–Free Pattern January 8, 2017

Dramatic and plush, the Iceleaves shawl is a fast knit using superbulky yarn and size 19 needles. With a gauge of almost 2 stitches per inch, you’ll be done knitting this before you’ve binge-watched two episodes of your favorite series!

This pattern is for your personal use only. Please don’t sell items knit from this pattern, and please don’t pass the pdf along to your fellow-knitters. Instead, refer them to this blog. Click ice-leaves-shawl to download.

I almost can’t stand it anymore. Everything I have on my needles are projects I’m tired of, or long-term projects that I’ll be working on for years to come.  The “years to come” projects are two afghans made of tiny mitered squares.  So I’m waiting for deep winter to work on those.  I also have three sweaters on the needles. Oh, and I have two pairs of socks on the needles.  And a laceweight scarf, Kernel.  Plus a cotton table-runner.  You can check these out on nancyknit’s Ravelry page.  I like these projects. Well, I love these projects, but not now.  I’m itching to start something NEW!

I want to knit some gloves

and a vest

and I want to start a new sweater.

But I guess I’ll be disciplined and try to finish some things.

Here’s my dream list of items to have on the needle.  If I can keep these items on the needles, then I feel my knitting is under control:

Socks: 1 ladies” pair and 1 men’s pair, plain, ribbed, or simple cable

Fingering: 1 lace project like a scarf or socks, or 1 pair of stranded socks

Sweaters: 1 ladies’ sweater and 1 men’s sweater

Home: 1 project for something around the house

So, I guess I’m doing well, except I have one too many sweaters on the needle right now.  I guess I’ll wait to start something new. Hmmph.
