A spider’s web is an amazing thing. Beautifully structured and constructed, circular, unique.
I have been contemplating on this. I want to try to design a new shawl using this structure. I haven’t constructed a circular shawl in a long time. I knit the Beaded Pi over five years ago. I think that it is time for a new Pi shawl. I can mimic the look of a spider’s web within the basic structure of the classic Pi.
Last night I pulled some Einband from my stash. I have been wanting to try this yarn out and it has the body and bounce that I want for my shawl.
Einband is an Icelandic wool with a hand and feel of Lopi until it is washed and blocked. It is a real woolly wool. My Einband is undyed. I think that am going to paint this shawl as well.
I wonder if I can keep finding patterns with a six stitch repeat and single stitch spines – to keep the spokes going – we will see.
