The Seraphina shawl turned out lovely. I really like how the yarn striped. Have a wonderful weekend!


The shawl is absolutely lovely. How much would you charge to wind some yarn? I have a ball winder, but every time I try to undo a hank...skein? I end up in tears and the yarn gets cut at least once. I have some beautiful yarn I got in a swap that I am afraid to touch.


Hi Kathy - Thanks for the shawl compliment! When I undo skeins, first I untwist & before pulling it apart I find where the skein is tied & hold onto that as I pull it apart. That way the strands don't get tangled and it's in one big circle. After putting it over a chair back (or a swift) then I feel safe in cutting *just* the ties that are holding the skein - not the yarn itself. Pull the ties a bit away from the yarn & you should be able to cut it cleanly. Once you get that accomplished, the two ends are pretty easy to find, even on the toughest/slipperiest yarn. Having a swift doesn't really make that part any easier - a chair back works just fine! If you're still intimidated, you might check with your LYS to see if they could wind the yarn for you - even if they'd charge a small fee it would be worth it for you to be able to use the yarn! :) Good luck!


Oh!! The Seraphina is beautiful.

I keep running into this shawl all over blogland. I think I need to start one.


Your shawl turned out wonderfully! I love the colors in the yarn - it is gorgeous! Great job!!


Thanks Cindy & Kimberly - I think I'm going to do a kerchief-sized Seraphina next - I have some sock yarn that I'll never use for socks & I think it would be perfect. Now - to figure out a way to crochet in my sleep! ha!


Ohhhh, your Seraphina is gorgeous! You are such an inspiration! Thank you Bron!

LOL on the "Hidden Treasure!"


Your shawl is beautiful, and I like the swift. My husband made me one too, and it's great to have.


The shawl is gorgeous!


Seraphina is gorgeous! I love the earrings (I think they're earrings, and not stitch markers, right?) too.


Thanks, everyone! Yes, Jenn - they are earrings this time. ha! You're right, though, I think I need to specify what I'm showing next time. :)


Gorgeous shawl, Bron - beautiful work, as always. I did buy two skeins of the stuff, so I'll probably make mine a bit larger - I can rent it out as a tent in the summer :)

Awesome swift - I agree with you about the rustic look. Very cool indeed!


love the earrings - and the beads look like they carry the oriental theme a little further? Hmmm, that's one tricky secret pal you've got there! You'll love the swift, and I bet you'll smile and think of your DH each time you use it!


Thanks, Robbyn. :) I decided to stay with the shorter shawl since I won't really be wearing it "out." My swift is pretty darn cool - I've been winding & winding & winding.....:::Grin:::

Definitely a tricky pal, Nat, I really lucked out! Yep - the beads are Oriental-ish - I think I'll string them with white beads. Very summery. :)

Seraphina Shawl

Do you have one of the blue seraphina shawl
that is pictured here? I will buy it from you for $6.00.
I would like to have one.
Let me know.


Absolutely beautiful shawl!!! What wonderful work!!
I did a little searching and the name Seraphina refers to angels mentioned in the Bible by Isaiah that have 6 wings each. I can definitely see the 6 wings in your shawl. Did you know this or am I the only one who did not know the meaning of Seraphina? lol


this is beautiful where do you get the pattern i would love to make one for my prayer shawl ministry thanks rita
