I need to give some people a lot of credit regarding my Forest Canopy Shawl, my Feather and Fan Stole, and my Argosy Baby Blanket. Sure I'm the knitter, but I have great yarns and clever patterns to work with.
The Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl is by I'm Knitting As Fast As I Can. It's a great pattern and I really enjoyed knitting it. It's not her only great pattern, by the way. You'll be seeing at least one more of them here. The yarn is two-ply fingering (sock) weight Peruvian wool in Mermaid, from Farm-Witch at Enchanted Knoll Farm (whom I recommend highly).
I made up the pattern for my Feather and Fan Stole, inspired by a stole in Folk Shawls, a book I think everyone who knits shawls and stoles should have. This yarn, which is hand-dyed fingering weight wool yarn, came from Pippi Knee Socks. If you're looking for beautiful hand-dyed yarn, particularly for socks, go here.
As for the Argosy Baby Blanket, it's designed by Vyvyan Neel. Vyvyan is a very talented designer and an exceedingly nice person. I've already knitted a bunch of Argosy scarves and will probably knit an Argosy shawl or wrap. I'm a real Argonaut. She has other great patterns, too.
The yarn for the blanket is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Rainbow. I bought it from Yarnbow, who is one of my very favorite sellers on eBay. The store is an absolute snare for me, as I can hardly visit it without buying at least one skein of yarn, if not half a dozen.
I probably don't need to add that I have no connection with these people except as a satisfied buyer or user, but I will, anyway. Just in case there are suspicious minds reading this.
