Because I've been busy, I haven't had time to take many pictures. But Eric's been asking so I'll be taking the camera out with me today. However I do have an FO.... May I present the Paisley Lace Shawl!
Pattern: Paisley Lace Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark, Interweave Knits Spring 2005
Yarn: Jaggerspun Zephyr in Mulberry, less than 2 2oz. cakes.
Needles: 3.5 mm Inox circs
This took me a while despite the fact that it was a fairly easy knit. Or maybe it's because it was an easy knit that it took me so long. That centre portion? Had the chart memorised by about the fourth repeat. The border wasn't that complicated either. And there was no fussy picking up of stitches or anything. It was just straight-forward knitting.
The blocking was easy too. (Please excuse the crookedness of the shawl in the above picture. This was taken after the shawl had already been blocked and used.) I just washed the shawl and then pulled it a bit. However the finished shawl was a little small. I like how the stitches look at this level of pulled out-ness (I'm sorry I'm getting technical here... ;) ) and didn't want to make it bigger. Thus the shawl looks small on me. However, it is perfect on its petite recipient, my six-year-old sister. Heh.
Near the border, with the little one's leg thrown in for good measure.
I have to go swimsuit shopping today. Yesterday was unsuccessful. I got some wicked shades though. Eric would say that I looked like a bug.
