Queen Anne’s Lace
OMG this pattern. I love it. Unfortunately I had maybe half the yardage I would have needed to complete this shawl, and even going down three needle sizes still wasn’t enough; I had to truncate 35 rows early! This has been my first circular shawl and it was great. Each row is different, and I love that. Every time I looked at completed works at Ravelry I swooned because they were so gorgeous, and that was encouraging. I can’t believe it’s so easy to create something so beautiful. MMario’s shawls are just too amazing to be as unpopular and free as they are. Why isn’t everybody knitting them??? They’re so easy and pretty and free!
The Queen Anne’s Lace is for my dad’s girlfriend Helen’s birthday. I love knitting lace shawls but until I had a great time documenting this, I didn’t think I had anyone to knit them for. Well now I totally want a lace shawl. So versatile! I love the yarn too, it’s incredibly crisp and blocks beautifully. How does one dye something GRAY anyway?
