Sprouts Shawl Complete


Forgive me for putting up so many photos....I like each one for different reasons.  Well it is finished!  I managed to have a personal photo shoot with the shawl and myself.  Self portraits are difficult for me but it does get me thinking outside the box and that is good for my age, ha ha


The ravelry notes are here.  I used Malabrigo sock yarn and it was wonderful to knit with.  I highly recommend the yarn for a lace project.  It's springy and the dye variations are beautiful!


The pattern is Alcyone by Romi Hill.  The directions are written out perfectly.  There is charted as well as written out directions.  I always go for the charted.  It is so much easier to "see" the pattern on a grid for me and I think I knit faster.


It was my first time knitting a shawl from edge to edge and I did like that type of construction. Blocking the shawl really brought out the lace detail especially the border.  Although I never memorized the pattern, I did get into a rhythm of knitting and was able to find my place easily on the charts whenever I picked up and started knitting.


I enjoyed the challenge of this shawl and it was fun whipping through the charts and thinking "just one more row"....that's when you know you have a good knit in your hands :)
