TA DA!

Ok, my sister is down for the weekend and just stepped out to a birthday party, my husband just went to Home Depot....so it is the perfect time for taking photos of an FO!
Sorry, I didn't dress up for this one! I must say that the bright tshirt helps to show it off thought!



Here is the back and wearing it as a scarf. Under or over a coat is just gorgeous!



Started: April 21, 2006
Finished: April 29, 2006
Yarn: Regia Silk...of course.
Pattern: Sheltland Lace Shawl from Wrapstyle.
Adjustments: Well, I didn't follow the number of repeats, I just went with wanting to use 2 balls of regia...we all know how that worked out. The size is perfect I think. I don't really know how they made the edge so pointy...well I don't really like the dramatically pointy points! So my points are a little more subdued.

Notice the scrabble in the background...thanks so much for the challenging words;)

"quoxzak" yeah - It's a seven letter knitting term. It means "to wait patiently while a shawl dries." from purl needlemeyer. I think I figured around 122 pts for that baby!

Absolutely Beeyoootimous! Lace just always amazes me. I have a 4 & 7 year old and don't have the brain cells to do lace. Or at least that's my excuse!!

Beautiful! Love the white -- so summery! I'm working on the Flower Basket Shawl (which looks almost identical to the shawl you finished) but I'm adding to it to make it substantially larger, which as you know takes FOREVER.... but I know it will be beautiful when it's finished.

Wow that is absolutely gorgeous! You are just whipping things out aren't you?!
I think the white is a perfect color for a light summer cover.

What a wonderful project. You look marvelous!

Debbie said...

Both of your shawls look so pretty! How on earth can you knit them that fast?

grumperina said...

Absolutely beautiful! Some worry about white shawls looking like doilies, and this one is proof that they look stunning!!! Regia Silk - Carolyn's new favorite?

Judy said...

Gorgeous! I need to take the plunge and knit a shawl!

Purly Whites said...

So pretty! I'd insert a swear word in there because it really is that gorgeous, but you know, go to keep it clean.

andrea said...

It looks beautiful! Your work is so inspiring. Last year when I saw your Ene's scarf I decided I had to make it. Now I have the book, I only need the yarn. Congratulations, you look so elegant!

Last night I just happen to stop by your blog for the first ime. Saw this shawl, and now I'm frantically searching for some regia silk for myself. I'm craving for it, and I'm blaming you for this!
AAaarrgghhh!!!


Love, love, love your shawl, if you don't know yet.

Choose a pattern for your agate earring.You can just grab random agate beads and have an entirely random pattern if you like, but most necklaces are made based on a predetermined pattern. Even if you use a random pattern, your agate pendant will look more professional and finished if you place small spacer or seed beads between the agate beads.One common and simple pattern is: three agate beads, one accent bead, three agate beads, repeated throughout the whole necklace, with small spacer beads between every agate and accent bead. Bicone Crystal Beads come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and patterns. glass seed beads are the most colorful and versatile beads. china jewelry
