Snowdrop Shawl - In Progress

First, to note progress (you know, like, more than once or never) I made a schematic drawing, Grumperina-style...

Pattern: Snowdrop Shawl (pdf), by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee aka the Yarn Harlot
Yarn: Skacel Merino Lace in white
Needles: Size 5 Addi Turbos

Now my schematic -

The purple part is done. Done!

A rumpled lace picture (this is how it looks in the wild) -

A few shots of the lace, fake-blocked (pinned down dry just for photographic purposes) -

I have to say, I love this. I love the pattern, I love knitting the lace, and I'm just having the best time knitting this shawl!

ooh, that is lovely!

oh and buy LOTS and LOTS of silky yarn! It's so gorgeous and that's a great price! I never have an idea of what I'm going to knit with yarn I buy. it's just fun having it around until inspiration strikes :)

do it!
