My Begonia Swirl after blocking. I just love this shawl! It was a relatively simple knit, too, though the last few rows seemed to go on forever and ever (especially the purl rows).


  • Pattern: Begonia Swirl by Carfield Ma (free pattern on Ravelry)
  • Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Fino (fingering, merino/silk blend), colorway 2106 Poppy
  • Needles: 3.5 mm (US 4)
  • Mods: I added two rows to the lace pattern: one WS row (purls) and a lace row to make the petal ends sharper (more info on my Ravelry project page)

Here are some WIP Wednesday treats.

1. Fish Scale Fingerless Mitts (read more about them here). They’re pretty basic fingerless mitts with the addition of the stitch pattern from Show-off Stranded Socks. The yarn is Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk Paints.

2. Nurmilintu Shawl. I’ve seen this pattern come up everywhere lately, and last night I caved in and decided to cast on. The pattern is designed by Heidi Alander, and it’s available for free in Finnish and English. The yarn I’m using is Rowan Fine Art in the Raven and Peacock colorways.
