Roses Are Red Shawl Complete
Over the weekend, I finished the shawl for my mother in law. I am quite pleased with it. I would definitely make the Holden Shawlette pattern again. It was very easy to follow and I was able to memorize most of the pattern, which means I could knit and talk at the same time. Can't beat that!
I did make some minor modifications. I repeated the chart three times instead of two and a half. I also decided not to do the picot edging. I felt it would have been a little to busy visually with the yarn being multicolored and I was afraid I might not have enough yarn. I did do the stretchy purl bind off.
This is the second time I have knit with Ella Rae Lace Merino and I just love it. It is very springy and the dyeing technique never leads to pooling of the colors. The yarn also blocks beautifully!!
