Lace Weight Color Affection Shawl Complete


Last night I feverishly finished the color affection shawl in lace weight yarn.  I love this version so much more than the fingering weight one I knit a few years ago.  The lace weight version is so light and airy and so so very soft.


The photos are unblocked and I'm not sure I will block this shawl.  I like how it looks as is and I do not want to stretch out the garter stitch rows.  I love how the ends curl as well :)


I have at least 1/3 to a 1/2 skein of yarn in each color left over and already my mind is mulling over a triangle scrappy version of boneyard shawl or something similar. At least that was my thought last night.  Now that a new day has dawned, I'm rethinking that idea.  Oh well, the yarn will be there whenever I decide.

  12. Like your shamrocks...when you posted a picture of shamrocks before, around St. Patrick's Day, it inspired me to bring home my own shamrocks form the grocery store. :) And love your so, so soft shawl!

  14. Lovely finish! I enjoy the colors so much. I confess, sometimes I wonder why I like gray so much, but it is so calming, so serene. Great job!
