Episode 12: Angular Momentum

Hello!

Here is just a little one while I am away visiting the States. I chat about the Angular Momentum wrap in MissBabsyarn, pick a winner for the Oracle shawl, which I call a wrap, but you knew what I meant! I also spontaneously included some footage of the local farmers market, where I came across C.H. Wool, a spinner and knitter whose work can be found at muddymeadowfarm.com and on Facebook.

Happy knitting,

The Starflower shawl

Hello!

The Starflower shawl is out now!

Starflower shawl by Renée Callahan whole

Starflower is a semi-circular shawl worked in chunky yarn to create a hug of wool that revels in simple elegance. Easily made as large or as small as you would like, this is a perfect first-shawl project or a quick knit for someone in your life in need of warmth.Starflower shawl by Renée Callahan detailI had the pleasure of using the appropriately named Pleasingly Plump yarn from Hill View Farms for this sample shawl, which is an exceptionally soft 100% Blue-faced Leicester wool. This is the same yarn I used for the Starflower Sweater and I can’t recommend it highly enough!  Starflower shawl by Renée Callahan

A shawl may not be the first thing you would imagine knitting with chunky yarn, but I think there is a good case to be made for it! I’ll chat about the shawl and the benefits of chunky yarn on the EastLondonKnit podcast Episode 7, coming out 30th June.

The shawl is 15% off until 4th July 2017 for subscribers to the EastLondonKnit newsletter!

You can buy the Starflower pattern here.
