Okay technically this is off the needles, but then when have you ever known me to follow the directions?? However, this is still in its unblocked state and I'm expecting a whole lot out of it when I get around to blocking it.
The shawl is Charlize which I found here on Ravelry.
I'm not certain exactly which combination of sizes of lace part and edging part I chose to knit. What I do remember is that this lace pattern while not technically difficult drove me CRAZY! I couldn't "read" it at all. I did lots of counting and recounting and recounting what I had recounted. And while I like this shawl/scarf I will NEVER knit another one like it. I don't think the results were worth the effort - does that make sense? For something I slaved over I wanted it to be a "WOW" and it is just a "nice".
Now I do like that row of eyelets before the edging. In retrospect I kinda wished I had knitted that part in a contrasting color. It might have elevated this project.
The yarn is Malabrigo and the colorway is Turner, a lovely mottled olive and very very soft. I need to have a blocking day here soon. I have another little scarf that needs attention and I'm almost done with my Whippoorwill shawl. Check back next week.
Thanks Judy for starting this link-up. Design Wall Monday always gives me the kick in the butt I need to be productive on the quilting front and hopefully this will do the same for me in knitting.
Well, it is heating up here in southern Ohio -gonna be 90 by Sunday. Think I'll be hibernating in the AC doing a little knitting, a little cross stitch and a little sewing. Have a great weekend!
