Trinity Hospice Charity Shop - Victoria First to Review I went here twice. The second time was immediately after the first because I'd dropped my mitten and had to go back and fetch it. This charity shop has got a unique characteristic that may be of interest to some people, but it hammered no nails for me. About 1/4 of this shop is chock full of yarn. Perhaps people buy it for knitting, but I'm inclined to think the the workers at this shop like to twine themselves into different colored balls and run around the streets saying "boo!"

Knits and Crafts: Mystic Forest shawl pattern Inspired by nature itself, with its mysterious tree leaves and unknown undergrowth plants of a dark green forest, this lace shawl is just waiting to be knitted and become the best companion for chilly summer nights. The shawl consists of the main section and the lace edging that is knitted onto the centre part using circular needles. The pattern has both lace charts and text instructions. Have fun! Download the knitting pattern as a pdf file on Google Docs or Ravelry. Oops! digitalnabi The culmination of Design Series, Nancy & Judy emerge as a shawlette of sisters. Stitch patterns from Barbara Walker’s Treasuries inspired and transformed into alternating sister sections of a shawl. Both made from the same essential twisted stitches but expressed quite differently. Judy is straight arrow, clean crisscrossed lines over a field of simple stockinette.

StellaLuna There are two things that I do not really enjoy in lace knitting: sewing on a lace edge and casting off a million stitches at the bottom of a triangular shawl. StellaLuna was designed in response to those feelings. The knitting starts at the bottom of the shawl and the piece decreases as it goes.
