knitted :: Sunset Aranami, originally uploaded by earthchick.
I am so ridiculously excited about my Sunset Aranami, which I finished up on our way home from Georgia a few days ago. I still need to weave in the ends and block it before I show it to you, but here’s a little peek. Isn’t this going to be so pretty for fall?
And now that I’ve finished my Aranami, I’m turning my attentions back to the TTL Mystery Shawl. I finished up Clue 3 (out of 5) yesterday and am happily moving ahead with Clue 4. This yarn is a dream (Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere in “Curaco”). I’ve never done a Mystery Shawl before, but of course you can’t go wrong with a TTL pattern, so I had no qualms.
And speaking of TTL shawls, don’t forget that today is the last day to enter my little giveaway, for a chance to win my handknit Nefertem shawl or one of five patterns for the shawl that Kirsten Kapur is generously giving away.

I am all about shawls right now too. No time for much other than “work” knitting, but my knitting fantasies (and my queue!) are full of them. Hopefully in a few months when things settle down a bit I’ll be able to cast on a few!
I’m also knitting a lot of shawls! They’re such pretty accessories and they knit (relatively) quickly. I have a lot of sweaters in progress too, but I guess shawls also seem better in summer.
I think it is truly great that you remember and celebrate the lives of your children on this day every year. It keeps me believing. And I also want that shawl.
I’m SO crossing my fingers for that shawl 😉 Love your blue shawl! I’m only a few rows into part 4…it just keeps getting put to the side! ACK!
Your Aranami is so perfect! Also, my post-preggo is still too muddled to figure out knitting. So, instead of battling with a pattern, I’m gonna cross my fingers I win your gorgeous shawl. 😉
That Sunset Aranami is gorgeous, Stacey! So very beautiful….!
Ooh, I love that Aranami! What perfect color choices.
