Having finished my Textured Shawl, which is really more of a kerchief, and having decided it’s really the perfect size and shape for Bay Area summer shoulderwear, I’m itching to knit another one. (Kerchief is such a funny word, but so much better than “shawlette.” It sounds like a polite sneeze, kerchief.) In trying to keep myself from literally casting on another of the exact same thing, I’ve been considering other non-lace, modern-ish textured shawls, and I keep coming back to these two by Jared Flood, both of which have been on my list for some time:
The Guernsey Triangle (on the left), with shawl and kerchief options, rivals any of his lace designs for showcasing his brilliance with knitting stitches, whereas the Romney Kerchief (on the right) is a lesson in how effective simplicity can be.
In the ICYMI department this week, I’m also still thinking about this — New Favorites: Haiku.
