What’s the knitterly version of a hat tip

I spent the last couple of days in the company of Peterborough knitters, knitting and generally hanging out and being relaxed, which was quite nice.



The fine knitters at Needles in the Hay have been doing a knitalong for my Lakeshore shawl pattern, all using Tanis Fiber Arts silk. I was just tickled that they chose this for a knitalong, and after a little less than a month of knitting several of them have already finished. It is honestly making me want a second one of my own. (Teal, this time. I’ve already picked my colours. What, I’m not the only knitter who thinks about yarn colours at random intervals, right?)



Anyhoo, hanging with them was just ducky. Fantastic knitting, ladies, I am envious of all of your final products and look forward to visiting again soon! Stay awesome.


  1. No, you are definitely not the only knitter who thinks about yarn colors at random intervals! 🙂 Looks like a great yarn shop. I love places who encourage you to come in and squeeze the yarn!

  2. You are not the only knitter who thinks of colors at random times. 😉 LOL. Beautiful shawls!

  3. They are so lovely. I think i must knit one!

  4. so pretty I hope my lace skills are up to snuff

  5. I love the plum colored one. Just so yummy!

  6. Beautiful shawls, lovely knitter friends, and tea. What more could one ask for? Oh yes, another skein of gorgeous, pet-able yarn!

  7. They are so pretty! I love how big the shawls are.

    Knitterly equivalent: “a click of the needles”, maybe?
    Lovely shawls. I wish I like wearing them as much as I like knitting them. 🙂

  9. I’m pretty sure I need to knit another one. Now if only I could decide on a colour….!

  10. I’m right there with you, Brandi! Both on the wanting one more and the wanting all the colours. 😉

    Absolutely gorgeous!

  12. […] – had our latest meetup for the Lakeshore Shawl Knit-Along last Sunday – I haven’t gotten much done on mine on account of aforementioned Color Affection shawl, but others in the KAL are zipping right along and a few have even finished completely! Glenna herself came to visit and join in on the KAL action – check out her blog post for photos from that day here: https://crazyknittinglady.wordpress.com/2012/08/14/whats-the-knitterly-version-of-a-hat-tip/ […]

  13. I’m sorry I missed the get-together. Mine is progressing verrrrrrry slowllllly.
