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

Kathy

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.

Bron

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!

Cindy

Oh!! The Seraphina is beautiful.

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

Kimberly

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

Bron

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!

Margaret

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

LOL on the "Hidden Treasure!"

Vera

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

Michelle

The shawl is gorgeous!

Jenn

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

Bron

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. :)

Robbyn

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!

Nathalie

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!

Bron

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.

Susan

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

Rita

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