Knitting Green

 

 

Pattern

Rose extolled the virtues of her favourite pattern to Mormor…

.

 

Knitting

and Mormor began to knit.

.

.

Blocking

When she finished she pinned out the shawl and steamed it…

.

.

Helping

…the cat helped deal with the leftover yarn.

.

.

Finished!

Patience and Arianell were impressed!

.

.

Lovely

…so was Rose!

singing

Do you know this song?

I know a lady with a dark green shawl,

A dark green shawl,

A dark green shawl,

.

.

a little concert

I know a lady with a dark green shawl…

.

.

Love

And I love her to my heart.

.

The green yarn was handspun by a Hitty friend – and – it is actually silk, not wool. We thought a green-wooled sheep might actually produce silk locks…and we discovered that silk yarn squeaks when it is knit!

  1. The Tree Shawl pattern is one that is used most often in the Donahey Hitty’s household. Love the green. Your shawl is beautiful Mormor. The Hitty’s here are going to watch their lambs ears closer to see if they can get the same green color.

  2. I never heard the lyric, “I know a lady with a dark green shawl” …however I can sing I know a Mormor who knitted a dark green shawl…and I too, love her with my heart.

  3. The Country Hittys and I are very impressed with the lovely shawl and your lovely Hitty family. (and we enjoyed seeing the cat playing with the yarn ball)

  4. I’m impressed too. I love the shawl and your lovely blog post about it. Such a sweet story to read tonight before I head to bed. The shawl is even sweeter knowing the yarn was hand spun by a friend. I have wanted to try this pattern for quite a while now. Maybe someday I will get brave enough to cast on.
