Why, hello there!!
I’m glad you all enjoyed oogling my new books! Trust me when I tell ya that I’m enjoying them, too!
I have an announcement: I’ve created a pattern store. Yep, that’s right. Your very own one-stop Rosi G. pattern shopping! Have at it! Keep an eye on it for new stuff (got two in the works right now!)
I have no yarn pr0n for you today. Instead I bring you shawl pr0n. Just as lovely. Sometimes even lovelier!
Here I bring you Anne Hanson’s Star of Evening shawl.
I’ll give you all ONE guess as to what company’s yarn I used for this shawl.
Yep. You got that right. Schaeffer. After all, it’s my favorite yarn company. Keep that in mind when you wanna spoil Rosi G.
You can see the beautiful detail in this pattern.
You would be AMAZED at how simple it is to knit!! The pattern repeats are ridiculously easy to remember. Hence it only took me a week to finish.
This yarn blocked so well. I love it. OF COURSE I do! It’s Schaeffer!
