Before the madness that was the Ravelympics I finished a very interesting shawl project.  This pattern called Levens written by the very talented Lily Kate France breaks up yards of plain stockinette with vertical ruched sections and a lacy edging.

My Fleece Artist yarn in “Labrador” that I was so smitten and flummoxed by at the same time turned out to be the perfect choice for this shawlette.  I’ve used Fleece Artist Merino before in a different colorway for my Monkey Socks and once again, I loved the smoothness of this yarn.


Pattern: Levens by Lilly Kate France
Yarn: Handmaiden Fine Yarn Casbah Sock in “Ruby”
Needles: Size US 6/4 mm

February has turned out to be Shawl Month for me and my shawl mojo has vanished temporarily.  For now, it’s back to sweater knitting until the call of lace is too strong to resist.

    So very pretty! It’s funny how we go through stages in our knitting. I, too, have put aside lace briefly, for the call of a Spring cardigan, but am already ‘itching’ for another piece of lace work 🙂
