I know that I rarely post so close together any more, but I’ve been on a finishing kick lately and I absolutely love my latest project. I can’t stop staring at it. Without further ado:
The Yarn: Luxe from The Unique Sheep, Gradience, Deep Waters
The Needles: US 6 and US 8
The Verdict: This was a Knit-a-Long with the pattern release in installments, so I’ve been working on this since mid-July. The yarn arrived early and we worked each section of the pattern, doubling the size every so often, until the circle grew huge. The last section of the pattern actually added half the size and used half the yarn of the entire shawl. I finally finished this late last night and sat down to block tonight. Wes laughed as I played with the pins (one in each of the 250+ loops), but the result is amazing. What was once a few skeins of yarn, and then a growing lump of an object is a beautiful lace shawl with an amazing pattern. I know I’ll be treasuring this one for a long time to come.
