Koigu, Koigu, Koigu!


If you haven't knit with Koigu I have to tell you that you will fall in love with it when you do. I knit the "Koigu Keepsake Shawl"and am now knitting a scarf with the left over yarn. It's for my sister as she did the same thing for me! I first saw her shawl last summer and of course fell in love with it. Then the following Christmas I received a scarf she knit from her left over Koigu! She was thrilled when I told her I wanted to knit the "Keepsake Shawl". She promptly ask, "I guess you know what to do with your little bits of left over Koigu?" So it seems I have been knitting for this sister of mine since before Christmas. I gifted her a beaded scarf of Sivia Harding's, Angel Pearls Beaded Scarf, http://siviaharding.com/patterns-beads.html for Christmas then started a chevron patterned scarf in the Koigu for her. I'll be sure to post my "To Knit" list for ME when I get this scarf finished. Here's a photo of my Keepsake Shawl and I have to say it is prettier than that!!!!

I love this beautiful, colorful shawl! Maybe a pair of socks from Koigu... I am supposed to be on a "use up the stash" diet. I like your new blog!
