Yarn Along–Scarlet Ibis

IMG_2595I’m so excited about yesterday’s release of my new shawl & shawlette design Scarlet Ibis. It’s a wing-shaped shawl that’s extra wide for wrapping cozily around you as the temps start to plummet and Autumn get into full swing.

There is a lovely feather lace panel edged by a chevron garter lace border with a garter wedge in the center.  The shawl is worked from the center out to the left wing tip, then provisional stitches are picked back up and the right wing is completed.  It’s really fun to knit and I’ve included separate PDF versions for charted and written instructions, depending on your preference.  You’re welcome to work from both if you’d like!  The shawlette is roughly the first half of the shawl, which gives it a really interesting triangular shape.  It fastens with buttons for the perfect fall accessory.  The pattern has been professionally tech edited by my TE Liz and test knit by my lovely friends Laura, Claire, Yvonne and Catherine.

To celebrate the release, please enter ALMOSTAUTUMN at checkout to receive 15% off your Scarlet Ibis pattern purchase until midnight CT on 9/10 thru Ravelry!  And if you’re not interested in making a purchase today, would you please click through to Ravelry to see more pics and details? Every click counts during launch week and I would be so grateful!

As for books, I purchased 7 books through Google Play with my Google Opinion Rewards space bucks the other day, but I fear it might be a while before I’m able to dig into them.  Titles I chose (for $1.99 each!) were The Paris Wife, The Body Finder, A Life in Stitches, If I Stay, Orange is the New Black, and the first three Maze Runner books.  How did I do?  Did I pick some winners?  What should I start with?

Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along this week.  See you all again next Wednesday friends!

  1. I liked The Paris Wife. It’s interesting.
    Have you read the story titled “The Scarlett Ibis”? We read it when I taught middle school language arts. So, you see your work and your shawl name fit Yarn Along perfectly! WHAT a lovely shawl pattern. Way to go!

    • I have read it! Both in middle school and again just recently. I was able to appreciate it more this time around 🙂 Thanks for the nod to The Paris Wife–I may have to start there.
