Garter Stitch

Yarn: Cascade 220, Color #8267

After knitting laceweight Malabrigo on Size 3's, the Size 8 Addi Turbos that I'm using now feel like clubs -- but it's a nice change. I've been craving something simple, something that's just garter stitch throughout. It feels comfortable and common -- like this shawl will be when it's finished.

I was inspired by this, which is what I actually started before losing the love for it rather quickly. It was too dense and I wasn't looking forward to knitting the edging (although it's wonderful, I think it's too fiddly for what I wanted this shawl to represent). So I frogged and started the Garter Stitch Prairie Shawl from Cheryl Oberle's book, Folk Shawls. When this shawl is finished, I'll re-visit the other Cheryl Oberle shawl I've been working on.

I'll wear this garter stitch shawl, but ultimately I want to send it to a loved one.


I love that color! What yarn are you using?

Hi Janet,
I have to tell you... after starting yet another new project last week (soakers for a friend's new baby), I think I've reached my breaking point. I haven't finished anything in months (including the soakers)!!! I think I'm going to have to hop on the one-project bandwagon.
I am so jealous of all your FO's. :)

Beautiful colour Janet. I love the simplicity of garter st.

Is that a Nora-of-Black-Dog-Knits stitch marker?? I recognize her handi-work from a mile away!

Beautiful garter st.!

Great dark green for the shawl! Looks like it will be a very cozy shawl! What is the yarn?

Wear it, imbue it with more love than it had from the knitting, and send it on?

It is pretty odd feeling going from the tinies to the biggies. Sometimes simple knitting is indeed a welcome break.

According to my exploration, thousands of people in the world receive the loan at various banks. Hence, there's a good possibility to find a term loan in all countries.
