Hi everyone! My name is Angelia, and I will be the knit buddy for the Paper Lanterns shawlette.
Last year, I knit the shawlette in the January RSK shipment & fell in love with shawlettes. They are SO versatile! I was so excited to see a shawlette as the accessory pattern in the January shipment this year. I am intrigued by the Paper lantern edging, and the colorway makes me think of Spring.
I live in Pennsylvania (USA). I don't mind cold weather. It gives me a reason to knit & also to wear my handknit items (like the shawlette from last year's RSK). This winter, however, has broken everyone's spirits - even mine. We've had snow and ice (I HATE ice!) and freezing rain and extreme cold. This week will be the first week, since the beginning of the year, that my daughter has not had a snow day (day off of school). So I'm ready for a fun, intriguing knit in a Spring-y colorway!
I was thrilled when Tina emailed me, asking me to be the knit buddy for this shipment! I wound the yarn last night & cast on this morning (before work, in my car, in the parking lot). I managed to knit 4 rows before I had to go into work.
If you're knitting the Paper Lanterns shawlette, please let us know, in the comments.
