Another lace project completed
I've been trying to clear up some of my WIPs in anticipation of MS3, which begins tomorrow. With that in mind, I finished working on and blocked my Seraphim Shawl last night. I know that some people don't think variegated yarns work well with lace, but I think this is one case where that is not true. The very subtly colored yarn worked wonderfully with the design, and I love the result.
Pattern: Seraphim by Miriam Felton
Yarn: Knitpicks Bare Laceweight, dyed by moi
Size: 79.5in wide by 38 in deep
Needles: 3.75mm Knitpicks Options needles
So that's three shawls completed this month. I think that I will be frogging the last shawl that I have OTN, as I'm finding the pattern not interesting enough. Slogging through all the stockinette on this one was a beast. The shaped triangle shawl is not stockinette, but it is a four-stitch repeat for approx 110 rows, and that is totally not interesting to me right now.
I'm amazed that I've managed to avoid buying any yarn this summer. I even had what I needed for MS3 on hand. I DO go and look though. I just manage to navigate away from the page before temptation gets to me.
Ta for now.
