FO Friday: Rock Island Shawl
Pattern: Rock Island shawl by Brooklyn Tweed/Jared Flood
Yarn: Indigo Moon, Finest Silk, 481 yards (a bit smaller than it was supposed to be)
Size: 22″ x 42″ before blocking; 28″ x 60″ after blocking
I took a zillion pictures because I’m pleased as punch with the way it came out:
Blocking wires arrived from Knit Picks Wednesday. The package was slightly mangled, which maybe explains the delay, but the wires were perfectly intact.
So there it is. My first lace project. Not sure I will go back to lace knitting right away (maybe once I get some sharper needles), but I’m really happy with the end result. I’m off to visit my parents in Florida next week and will bring the shawl along in my minimal luggage in case there is a chance to wear it out or to dinner or even if it just gets a bit breezy. Any excuse to show it off.
