Giovanna McCarthy’s Knitting

I can knit.

But I have to follow a pattern.  I rarely try to “wing it.”

And some patterns make me break out in a cold sweat–mostly because if I make a mistake, I would not know how to fix it from within an intricate pattern.  (And I can fix dropped knits and purls, etc.)

But not Giovanna McCarthy.  She just gets better and better and takes on more and more intricate patterns.

Such as…this shawl.

And look at his gorgeous shawl pin:

Oh my goodness!!  Giovanna’s work just blows me away.

She is an inspiration!

  1. Oh you could do it Louisa. Just put in a life line after each number of repeat pattern rows. If it gets messed up just tear back to the life line, pick up the stitches from the line, and keep on going. 🙂

    • Thank you Margaret. That gives me courage. Good plan. Giovanna has given me patterns, so maybe I will try it if I can tear myself away from all the hand-sewing projects.
