Project planning: Seraphim Shawl

The Forest Canopy shawl is dead, long live the Seraphim shawl! This will be my first MimKnits pattern and my first charted lace. A little nervous about that one.

I ordered four skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Pine from the Loopy Ewe on Friday morning, and I got them on Saturday, I’m impressed! The pattern requires 800-900 yds of fingering weight and I was planning to take out one repeat, so that should be plenty.

I got my invite to Ravelry a few weeks ago and it helps seeing the finished and in-progress seraphim shawls. Definitely looks better in solid or nearly solid yarns. It will be my first big project in years, and my first charted lace ever. I did a Bad Thing and showed Anna the pattern, now she wants to make one too…

How do you hold the circular needle when it has a few hundred stitches on? My usual way works fine with socks but I’m already having problems.

  1. YAY! A Seraphim in LL! Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock is one of my very favorite yarns. I just finished a pair for my C for his birthday and I want to buy more and more and more so I never run out!
