Victoria Shawl: begin!

Like I didn’t have enough WIPs already.  🙂  I couldn’t resist purchasing the new Victoria Shawl pattern.  The perfect yarn was already sitting in my stash: KnitPicks Stroll Tonal Sock Yarn in Seashell.

The pattern is easy to memorize and not difficult to do; so far it’s just been chains, double crochet stitches, treble crochet stitches (at the top edge), and puff stitches.  It’s working up at a decent rate, too.

The stitch pattern kind of looks like flowers to me, and the colors in the yarn remind me of Japanese cherry blossoms.  Maybe I’ll nickname mine the “sakura shawl.”  Really pretty for spring, if your spring isn’t already hitting the 85 degree mark.  It’s been a little toasty this past week, and I’m envious of all the places that are still getting snow and wintry weather!  The only thing “snowing” here is the pollen — my red car looks brown from the the added layer of yellow-green.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today.  See you soon, and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Very pretty!


  2. I just started this too! Love your yarn choice.


  3. Oh that yarn is so gorgeous! It is knitting up so pretty, too. I can’t wait to see this one finished. You picked the perfect yarn for this one. I can definitely see the Japanese Cherry Blossoms colors in it.
