The Phoenix Shawl is a triangle shawl with a special construction. All parts are joined on the go, you’ll need no sewing.

The blazing fire colors of Filisilk gave me the impulse to design this shawl, and searching the WWW I found Dana’s wonderful painting of the Phoenix rising. Thank you to the artist for permitting me to use this beautiful painting!

In Germany, we celebrate St Nicholas Evening tonight.
Children place their boots on the doormat, and St Nicholas drives along the streets in the evening and fills these boots with sweets and little presents. With him goes his helper Knecht Ruprecht with a birch to spank naughty children – I am sure he won’t have any work with you! Knitters are just nice and friendly people!

I have a little present for your knitting boot – the PHOENIX SHAWL. This one is not swing-knitted™, everyone will be able to knit it.

Our Ravelry group will be 2 years old this month, so it’s time for a little birthday present for all who help to make this group so wonderful and lively – and to all who watch us and our Swing-Knitting™ and did not try yet.

The 3rd and 4th photo show the SWINGY PHOENIX, an adaption of the PHOENIX to Swing-Knitting™.
We hope to be ready with translating the SWINGY PHOENIX by this weekend – Nada is working very hard in it. The Swing-Knitting™ Workshop 7 will finally go online then, both in German and English, containing exciting new Swing-Knitting™ elements.

I wish you a nice cuddly woolly St Nicholas Evening!

If you have questions about the Phoenix Shawl, please ask them in our Swing-Knitting Ravelry group - there will be a specific Thread for the Phoenix Shawl.
