I know it is Summer, but I still wanted to share my first DreamBird shawl.
My shawl doesn't shape like the original shawl because I used size 4mm and 4 ply yarn. It is very thick and heavy. Now I know why the pattern called for size 3mm knitting needle. I already bought new yarn for another DreamBird shawl. Hopefully the second one will come out nicer.
When I first saw this dream bird shawl a few year ago, I wanted to make one so badly. I didn't mind paying for the pattern either. But after I read comments from people who followed the pattern, they said the pattern was confusing. Therefore, it hold me back from purchasing the pattern. Not long ago I started to search for tip on making the DreamBird shawl and I found a few that said the pattern was easy to follow. All I need is to follow a one page line by line instruction. I decided to buy the pattern and gave it a tried. Here is my first feather practiced using 4 ply worsted yarn. It took me a long time but I did it the very first try. Very easy to follow just need two stitch markers (I used scrap yarn) and a row counter.
I'm here to share a baby set that I made for my niece. Her favorite color is yellow.
The blanket still need blocking. I used Red Heart pattern. You can fine the rose patter here. You need to go to page 10 for the rose pattern. I can't wait to make another one or two with pink or purple.
I'm tired of making box for gift card so I made gift bags instead. These were made from 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches card stock which mean one 8 1/2 x 11 makes two bags. I'm planning on making more. I will share the measurement then
