Surf City Shawl Complete
I finished this shawl a while ago but hesitated to block it when it was off the needles. I skipped the blocking in the end, because I loved the wavy lace eyelet strips and felt that a block, no matter how gentile would disturb the design.
I loved this surf pattern tremendously! You should knit this one up if you have any lace knitting skills and chart reading skills. I was crazy and decided to knit the large size knowing full well I didn't have enough yarn based on the recommendations of the pattern. So my lace edging on the cast off edge is shy one eyelet row out of three. I'm okay with that because I used up all the yarn!
Purl soho line weight wool was beautiful to work with, I will confess that I prefer a crisper yarn usually with silk blended in. This wool has a slight halo from being a single ply and the twist was sufficient with minimal splitting. Again, a pretty yarn if your into single ply fingering weight.
I'm dreaming of knitting this pattern up again. Who knew I would be into asymmetrical shapes? Not me!
