I just could not wait to show you this shawl. I finished it over the weekend and managed to take some photos in the VERY hot weather. It was nearly 90 degrees when I took these photos. I cannot wait until fall arrives because I have a lovely new accessory to wear.
I couldn't resist this photo. See Frodo? He is patrolling his little world :) Little did he know that I was taking his photo. Whenever he sees the camera he thinks we are going outside for a walk about the yard. If i aim the camera at him he looks away to give me the best profile he can muster up (or is he ignoring me?)
I knit this shawl with size five needles and it was the perfect size for cobweb lace. Once I had a couple inches knit up the fine lace was very easy to handle. This project was addictive for me mainly because of the progressing colorway. I was always eager to get to the next color block.
I much prefer the citron with 880 yards of lace than 440 yards. For me it is a nice size to wear as a shawl or as a scarf around the neck.
