Pebble Beach Shawl Complete
I never tire of the excitement when I finish a shawl. The casting off is a reward that most knitter's get excited about. There is the fun of casting on, then the steady momentum of the middle part, you know picking up a project and just toodling along.
Then there is the cast off, soaking and blocking. The dessert of a fabulous meal.
This is my second Pebble Beach Shawl and I repeated the edge lace a bit more than was written in the directions. I find that the crescent shaped shawl to be THE shawl that wears nicely around the neck. Also the narrow depth distributes the weight of the shawl better.
I think I have a delicate neck and I don't like weight around it...
Ravelry notes are here!
That's a lovely shawl! I get the idea of not too much weight around the neck, I tend to go without shawls, scarfs and even cowls because of that. But this one looks lightweight and still warm. Love the color too!ReplyDelete
Might be the best one yet You will still get some good wear out of it before it gets too hotReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful! I will have to look at this pattern for myself as I really like the idea of a not-too-deep crescent shaped shawl. I love that gorgeous green!ReplyDelete
That color is beautiful. I love this pattern too.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Your yarn choice is perfect! xo TammyReplyDelete
That is PERFECT! It has a lovely drape!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! That green color is so lovely. I'll bet you get a ton of use out of this one.ReplyDelete
Such a lovely shawl! All of the Curious Handmade patterns are such a joy to knit. Yours turned out beautifully!ReplyDelete
It turned out fantastic! I am not familiar with that pattern. I'll have to queue that away for another day ...ReplyDelete
My goodness, this is beautiful!ReplyDelete
I love the pattern, and the color of the yarn that you used.
Sooooo lovely! It reminds me of a spring wood with flashes of golden sunlight through the new leaves. ♥♥♥ReplyDelete
Stunning, the drape is a delight and such a wonderful colour.ReplyDelete
Karen, it's beautiful! The color is perfect for spring! I can't wait to see what you knit next!ReplyDelete
I love it Karen! :) Definitely on my list of must do!ReplyDelete
That is so lovely. I think the green shades are amazing. What a perfect shawl and you photographed it so simply in your kitchen. LOVE the lightingReplyDelete
Beautiful and I love the color!!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous shawl. Of course, I added the pattern to my library. :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful and what a great spring accessory!ReplyDelete
This is a lovely finish! The blocking was its total metamorphosis. I love the lace and the color is so spring and summer.ReplyDelete
Lovely! the yarn yells "Spring!" and it is so pretty with the eyelets in the pattern.ReplyDelete
How beautiful, Karen! Between the lace and the colour this seems like the perfect spring shawl.ReplyDelete
Lovely! Such a great springy color, too.ReplyDelete
The shawl is so very pretty. Your photography is lovely. The close ups make me want to knit this shawl. Although I've seen and heard about the pattern, I've never paid close attention to stitch pattern in the body of the shawl. Must be the way I flip through the Ravelry patterns sometimes - too fast. Good lesson in slowing down and savoring the stitches.ReplyDelete
So beautiful, Karen! And, looks just like SPRING! I love it! (I so identify with the stages of shawl making! ha!) blessings and hugs ~ tannaReplyDelete
Oh goodness Karen, it is beautiful!ReplyDelete
