Blue and berries....
Pardon me for the picture heavy post, but..well I'm pretty proud of this..can you tell?
I know a worsted weight shawl is sorta cheating...
But you'll most likely not ever see me using actual laceweight...(see I didn't say never :P)
(sorry hard to make the picture upright, shouldn't have turned the camera huh)
As you can tell I blocked the points. Some people didn't, but hey to each his own. Oh, btw, I loved the bind off for this too. Took a while, but it added some bulk to the edge, which made it easier to block.
Thanks to patient daughter. Once in a while I can con her into modeling for me!

No mods, just used worsted weight yarn. Why did it take so long..come on, you know me, too many Wip's! Trying to finish them..one at a time!
What can I say. It's no secret I love The Plucky Knitters yarns ;) When I saw this colorway for sale in June I grabbed it all. This is my 2nd lace shawl and I'm sure it won't be my last. I try to knit using charts, but this one had me using written too. It's not hard, it was just making sure I knit the correct sections at the correct time. You could hear me chanting the pattern repeat many times ;) This was not an in the public knit for me.
It's lovely, squishy and cheery I think. I look forward to wearing it somehow ;)
