Pi Shawls

When I was active on Ravelry there were some Knit-A-Longs that I participated in for knitting Pi Shawls and a couple of them were Mystery Patterns where you got the next hint/section of pattern in the design. This is from one of those Knit-A-Longs using Araucania Ranco Multi Sock Yarn. I wear this one to Mass when the A/C is a bit much in the summer.

This is another of the Knit-A-Long patterns. I enjoyed the knit and the pattern but the yarn didn’t show the lace patterns off as well as the green shawl. This is another of Araucania Ranco Multi Sock Yarn colorways and is the same yarn that I’m using for the Monkey Socks I’m knitting now.

Pi Shawls are great folded in half and worn around the shoulders. They can also be worn with just a small part folded back instead of in half and the larger portion draping down across the back of the body.

In a pinch I’ve used one of these shawls as a table cover while taking photos or just to brighten up a room.

This photo came out a bit more yellow than the actual color. This shawl won me a ribbon at the county fair. I tossed it over the butcher block in the kitchen for this photo.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
