I recently purchased “Knitting Lace Triangles” by Evelyn Clark. It’s the most fantastic book!! Well, I’m not sure if it’s a book or a booklet… It seems quite small at first, but once you open it, you realize it’s not small in content quality. It’s spiral bound, which I love. I wish all knitting books were spiral bound! It’s more of a recipe book than a pattern book. She gives you the power to mix and match out of 4 patterns to make your own shawl. She walks you through shawl design. It has really made me feel empowered and I’ve owned this book only for 2 days.
I started a shawl with the Medallion lace pattern, and used an ordinary cast on beginning. I like the garter stitch tab cast on, and have used it before, but find it to be a bit fiddly for my clumsy fingers. The ordinary cast on looks just fine, though, and I am quite pleased with that.
I am using Malabrigo lace in pink, my most favorite of colors.
