Here is the shawl I have been working on forever, or so it seems. It is knit from Indie ii, a blend of Silk and Cashmere. As you might imagine, it is super soft and très luxurious. I made the body from “Alpine Knit Scarf”, and the border from one of the “Large Rectangles.” Both designs are from Victorian Lace Today. When I purchased the yarn, I had planned to make the “Curved Shawl with Diamond Edging,” but after several tortuous repeats, I could not grasp the pattern, and hence it was not fun to knit.
This is the first big lace thing I have made, and I was quite excited to finally finish and block it. Now, I just need go to Value Village and find something to wear it with, and then to find somewhere to wear it to.
The yarn, by the way, is a Littleknits exclusive. They specialize in lace yarn, the prices are reasonable, and the service very good. Do I sound like an advert? I’m not really, but I do recommend it.
