Lace, it’s addictive

So, I wasn’t going to blog about this project because it is a Christmas gift.  I’m not sure if I just don’t care anymore or if I’m just wanting to share the pictures.  Either way, I finished binding off and blocking the Traveling Woman shawl yesterday.  I did a full wet block on this shawl/scarf because I really wanted the Malabrigo to bloom.

I used Malabrigo Lace weight in the Velvet Grapes colorway.

Increased to 187 stitches.
Repeated Chart A 4 times.

Blocked to 56” wingspan and 19” deep.

I’m very happy with the finished product.  Plus, it is one more item crossed off the Christmas knitting list.

The shawl, she is finished

I finished knitting and blocking the Garden of Alla shawl on Wednesday.

I’m very pleased with how it turned out.

Pictures don’t do the yarn justice.  It has flecks of silver that just shine in the light.

The only thing I modified was to knit the center stitch through the back loop.  I also did the alternate edging, because the original didn’t make sense to my brain.

All in all, not bad for a month’s worth of knitting.
