Kauni Jeanie Shawl Finished!

As you can see, I am not much of a talker. It has been months since my last post.



The Kauni Jeanie Shawl is finally finished. This is only the second knitting project I have ever finished. I have literally 100 sock and shawl projects started on needles, but I can't quit starting other patterns I see. I was knitting this shawl for myself, but my daughter-in-law saw me working on it this summer and said she would like to have it. I didn't say anything but gave it to her Monday for her birthday. I don't know if I am more proud of how it looks, the fact I made it through a confusing chart pattern or that I actually finished something! It has been almost 2 years since I started to teach myself to knit.




Kauni Jeanie Shawl pattern free with purchase of yarn from Astrid's Dutch Obsession. http://astridsdutchobsessions.com/scripts/default.asp Yarn is Kauni EQ Rainbow, which is all one colorway.


Hopefully, I can begin to finish some of the other projects on the needles. It will have to wait till after Christmas, though. I have some quilts I am suppose to make for gifts (not making much progress on them). Oh, and I have to finish the turtleneck poncho I am knitting for my grandaughter's birthday tomorrow. I am using the same yarn I used on the Kauni shawl. I will post a picture later. Then there are all the other crafts I do . . . I feel like the rabbit in "Alice in Wonderland", but instead I am in the Tortoise Club. (sigh)



Happy Holidays to you all!!

What a gorgeous shawl! Congratulations on a beautiful job. I'm like you ~ I have lots of projects started (including two shawls, socks, a shrug, a blanket & fingerless mitts!) and seem incapable of finishing ANYTHING! Hopefully, your good example will help me get motivated to actually finish something.... ;-)

sea3324Cindi,

Your posting of the Kaunie Jeanie Shawl has encouraged me to finish mine, too. Beautiful job.

WOW!! Great job!! Now I'm inspired to finish the 2 shawls I have started...

Karen said...

that is a tremendous shawl - especially for a relatively new "member of the fold" to have finished! I bet your daughter was very pleased. Did you get your yarn from Astrid or somewhere else?

I am working on a lace shawl, and found your blog when I googled shawl pattern. As most knitters, I'm always looking ahead to the next one. What would I do if I had to go back a finish a half-begun garment instead of having the fun of starting a new one?!

Looks like you haven't posted in a while, but I noticed you listed "half circle chapel veil" as a current project. Is that a knitting project? I make lace chapel veils, and I've wondered about knitting one...Angie
