Boo-Knits Pattern

| Monday, May 28, 2012
I am so excited about this pattern review.  Please let me introduce to you a very talented designer,

She goes by Generous-Gardener in Ravelry and what a collection of designs she has created.  I am sure at some point while searching through Ravelry you have all come across one of her patterns.  You may not have known it was Boo-Knits, but I would bet you all have favorited at least one of her shawls at one time. 

A note from the designer, "There are few better feelings in life than deciding on a pattern, a yarn and a colour and creating a thing of beauty and balance that is not only pleasing to the eye but is use able, wearable and functional. Knitting is not a hobby - it is a way of life, a way of destressing, finding peace and rhythm and a wonderful way to share with people in every corner of the world. If world leaders were knitters …"

The Shawl pattern that I was able to review was

This pattern is delicate and elegant and really shows off a lighter look of shawls.  As you will see, this could really be worn over any type of outfit.  It could be used as a layering piece or something to kiss the tops of your shoulders on a warm summers eve.

The pattern was easy to follow, well written and really was a joy to knit.  I loved how as you grew the lace pattern, you could see each design take its shape.  This is a pattern that could be considered an heirloom piece if you really wanted it to take on that look.

Below are the photos of my shawl.

This is a very reasonably priced shawl pattern that is easily purchased off of Ravelry for your convince.  I can see this pattern being one that you might take to the lake for a long weekend of relaxing knitting on a porch or a small getaway to some place tropical.  The pattern calls for Fingering weight yarn, I know you all have a skein of yarn that you are not quite sure what to do with.  This is a great solution to a yarn that you might have only purchased one skein of or a special yarn that you might have picked up on a trip.  Either way, this is a summer knit that you do not want to miss out on.

Thank you generous-gardener for letting me review your Fantastic Shawl Creation!!

Thank you so much for you kind words - I am so glad you like my shawl! It can also be knit in laceweight with the same size needles so is extremely versatile! x
