From Susan — I Remembered!

Filed under: Updates — lv2knit @ 12:31 pm

Well, more like I was reminded!  A friend brought her finished Forget-Me-Not Shawlette to knitting a couple of weeks ago and reminded me about the kit that I bought at Yarnover, 2015 (upper left corner of this picture):

Linda had knit her shawlette “crescent style.”  She said the instructions were included in her pattern, but they were not in my version.  I faked it and came up with my own crescent Forget-Me-Not:

It is so cute!  I love the colors and love the feel of the fabric.  I hope that when next fall rolls around, I will not forget this little cutie, though it does go with a light blue linen shirt that I wear in the summer!  Fast knit and nice results!

PS to Anne C.:  Anne asked how I wear these small, triangular shawlettes.   It varies depending on their size somewhat.  This one is small and not slippery.   I tied it in the back and let the ends hang down and it stayed in place, but I didn’t wear it very long.  If needed, I think I would pin it invisibly so it would hang down in back and just look tied (not in a full knot).   Kathy W. wore one of these at knitting recently.  She tied the ends in a knot and wore the point slightly to one side — it looked super cute!!

PS2 to Susan — I have made numbers 1, 4, and 5 (there are two 5’s, the StevenBe’s Alchechini — one kit was for Surly and she has not made hers yet!).  Number 4 was this little necklace.  2 & 3 are still marinating!!!


  1. That yarn and that design go together beautifully. Lovely work, as usual.

  4. Nicely done, as usual. A question: when you wear a shawlette like this, do you just tie the ends in the back, or wrap them back around in front and tuck under? I haven’t figured out the best way to wear these small triangles yet…

  5. It’s lovely!

    Unrelated question:. How many of the other lovelies in the picture are finished objects?
