New Shawl Knitter

Hello everyone,

Here is my work-in-progress on the Seraphim shawl. I am just starting chart #1. I have never knitted a lace shawl before, so I am very nervous about the charts and everything. Before I start the chart I am going to run a life-line. Just in case! The yarn I am using is GB Wolle Cosy Socks. I have never used it before but it seems to knitting up just fine. The color is black.

I am very happy to be a part of this KAL. And I will look forward to seeing all the finished shawls.

Till later.

Newbie Here!

Hi everyone! I'm one of the new KALers. I started my Seraphim Shawl this past Sunday, after finishing up another one of Miriam's fabulous designs, Adamas.

At the moment I have two more increase rows (rows 5 and 6) to do before I begin the lace charts. Here's a progress shot:

I'm using one of the new Knit Picks yarns, Gloss, for my shawl. It's a merino/silk blend, and it has a lovely sheen to it. I forget the name of the colorway, but the color in this picture is pretty much true to life.

I've been enjoying seeing everyone's versions of the shawl -- it's so interesting to see it done in so many different colors!

Welcome to the batch of new members...

I feel a bit like a schoolteacher welcoming the kiddies to class :) I hope you'll enjoy knitting the shawl and feel free to ask any questions :)

Cheers Eva

Hi everyone! Glad to be along!

Hi! My name is Regina. I've been working on Seraphim as a 'to go' project (as I'm only in the increasing portion of the pattern) for a couple of months now ( I cast on for it on a road trip in June, I think). I'm really enjoying my colorway, which is Gardenia in Knitpicks Sock Garden 100% merino - it's a blending colorway from red to yellow to orange and back. I love it. I don't know what the colors are going to do in the lacework, but the color repeats of the yarn are so short and the rows are so long that I think it's going to be all right. I chose these colors because seraphim are flaming angels in the bible (angels on fire), and I think it's fitting to have a shawl that looks like fire to represent them. I mean, could anything be better than flying around while on fire shouting "Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty! The whole earth is filled with his Glory!"? That could just be me though. In any case, here's a progress pic from about a week ago:


Please pay no attention to my abysmally messy desk. :)
Glad to be along and excited to see others' interpretations and yarn choices for this beautiful pattern! :)
