I can honestly say that the only reason I managed to get it done in time is because of the pattern. It's brilliant and fun. The knitting part flew by so much faster than the spinning part. I even loved the bind off. I've never done an icord bind off before. It looks great and gives the top edge a nice solid feel.
I'll wear the thing for about 10 minutes at the festival and then it will live in my basket for the rest of the weekend.
Back at home it will be tucked into the ever growing pile of festival shawls never to be heard from again. In the meantime I will be fretting about next year's shawl.
It's all good.
Before Regina Marie was dry I had already pulled out another lace WIP to take her place. Aubade is back in production but I have to say it took me a good while to figure out what was going on.
Beautiful work! And I guess, I've picked up the baton... When you were finishing your shawl, I started mine.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I'll be looking for it at MDSW.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! Love the shawl and the color. Congratulations on a timely finish!ReplyDelete
Wow! It is beautiful and floaty! And done in plenty of time-great job!ReplyDelete
Very pretty! And just in the nick of time too. That weekend is fast approaching! I need to get busy and pack my bags!!ReplyDelete
Dang, back to back lace. You're no joke! It is beautiful. I love reading about a knitters love knit. This sounds like you completely enjoyed it. I really love the colors in it. In pictures 4 and 5 it almost looks like it's sunshine coming through a sunset/sunrise. Not that I see many sunrises through my squinched up eyes that early, ha!ReplyDelete
I thought the same thing. I thought it was the way the light was falling but it's pooling that makes the rays.Delete
Regina Marie is beautiful! Is it a tradition to make a shawl for MDSW?ReplyDelete
I was thinking about how nice the edging was before you mentioned it. It gives a nice tidy edge.
Yep. I spin the yarn from the fiber I bought the previous year. Been doing it for ages.Delete
Absolutely gorgeous! Looks like it was a challenge to block with all those points. I'll bet you will be the star of MDSW!ReplyDelete
Your shawl is stunning! And I love your handspun. It will be so much fun to wear. Nice, sunny yellow for your next lace project.ReplyDelete
