I recently posted some of Giovanna McCarthy’s knitting projects from the past few months—as we Stay-At-Home.

She sent me pictures of two of the projects she has since completed, and I though you all would like to see them.

Here’s the shawl, which is just WOW!

And here’s the “painting the bricks” project, which is another “Wow”!

Giovanna makes this kind of lacy work look easy. It isn’t!

Turkey Tracks: Giovanna’s Recent Knitting Projects

Giovanna McCarthy is a master knitter.

I so enjoyed seeing pictures of her recent work, and I thought you might too.

Here is an in-progress shawl.

I adore this sweater. She will look so pretty wearing it. And I look forward to the day when I see it ON HER.

The longer length on this one makes it work like a jacket. Lovely. And, of course, the texture is beautiful.

Giovanna is known for the intricate lacy knitting work she does. Here is a great example. This one is “in progress” as it still needs, sleeves. The color is yummy!

She called this next “in progress” work something like “painting the bricks.” I believe it is going to be a shawl???

Thanks, Giovanna, for sharing your work. All of these wonderful projects have made my day brighter.

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.

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

She is an inspiration!
