A New Knit: Grannie Annie

ImageHere is the start of my Grannie Annie shawl, cast on this past Saturday.

It's going to be a multi-colored affair, using a simple fan and feather lace pattern to create texture and shape.


The colors pattern randomly throughout. I'm hoping to end up with something warm and beautiful that will look just right against winter whites.

Grannie Annie is going to be my relaxing airplane knitting for the next couple of months. The pattern is simple enough to knit while carrying on a conversation.


The yarn I'm using for this is my newest addiction, The Plucky Knitter's Cachet. This yarn is a knitter's Nirvana – 100% cashmere that is listed as an Aran weight but knits up closer to a dk or light worsted for me. This yarn is expensive and worth every penny of it. Grannie Annie will be my third shawl in Cachet and my enthusiasm for knitting with this yarn continues to grow with every project.
