Finally! Love Lane is ready. Through a long, hectic summer that began in the hospital and ended with the sigh of relief that every East End of Long Islander sighs, it waited patiently. My idea for the shawl formed with a trip to Mattituck, on the North Fork of Long Island. There, on Love Lane, is a little yarn shop – Altman’s Needle and Fiber Arts – and in that shop I found the perfect color for the soft, textured wrap that I’d been dreaming up. It’s just right for cool fall evenings, and will keep you warm all winter.
Madelinetosh tosh merino light was just the yarn I wanted. I’ve designed with it before – the Persimmon Cowl – and I love to knit with it. And now that madelinetosh makes Unicorn Tails, what better way to add some color than with a few little skeins, and not a whole one? It’s an asymmetrical shawl that starts awith a few stitches, and edge increases and decreases create the slightly angled shape. There’s subtle texture in this one – what I call Dots and Dashes – and the fabric drapes beautifully. I’m really pleased with this one. And my head is swimming with more ideas!
Love Lane is available through Ravelry in my Ravelry Store. The pattern is written, with no need for charts or schematics. I hope you love your trip to Love Lane!

It’s beautiful, Jane! I have some tosh merino light just sitting in my stash . . . perfect for this shawl. I love the texture and the stripes. I’m glad your hectic summer is at an end; it’s time to relax and enjoy the fall. XO
Oh my goodness, Jane! It’s gorgeous. You are so freakin’ talented that is puts my little knitting endeavors to shame. Maybe I’ll come across you at Sheep & Wool? Will you be wearing your newest creation?
Oh, look! I’ve found my 2015 New Beginnings project!
