Lace ribbon shawl

Tuesday, 30 September, 2008

Something else I finished just in time for How Sweet the Sound: a shawl but with a lace pattern. I used the pattern from this lace ribbon scarf (which I had knitted for Bec earlier this year). The pattern is by Véronik Avery. But I did it on 15 mm needles with less pattern repeats. Here's the shawl unblocked:

(Sorry the photos are bad. I took them late at night.) Here's the shawl when I got it all wet:

And then I blocked it:

It dried pretty quickly so here I've tried to model it.

That’s really lovely - so vibrant and ethereal.

Thanks Kathleen!

This is really lovely, Karen. I’m always in awe of people who can knit: it’s always been beyond me. This is just gorgeous.
