Flower Garden Lace Shawl
I cannot believe this shawl is finished - I did over half of the knitting in a ten day period. My motivation or dangling that proverbial carrot stick was to put a clipping marker every day I worked on it so I could see my daily progress. I started this in July! My knitting attention apparently was elsewhere.
Being a nerd, I also crunched some estimated numbers once I had four days worth of 'data' to go on. This gave me the motivation that I needed, that and a deadline looming.
I usually knit while watching TV or reading a book with simpler knitting projects. Because of the eyelet columns, this project was strictly for TV or podcast listening. The pattern is great for beginner lace knitters if you are looking at branching out in knitting skills.
I love how blocking makes every single wool project look finished and polished. Soaking a lace project in wool wash for 20 minutes makes the wool bloom then blocking evens out uneven stitches and opens up those hard-to-see eyelets. The magic never stops amazing me and I've been knitting for decades.
