The pictures (thanks to my personal photographer, Cheryl) tell the story better than I ever could.
As usual, a brilliant Susan Pierce Lawrence shawl, very well written and beautiful to knit. I knit this shawl as per the modifications Susan made when knitting her own shawl out of this yarn. I thought I would knit it after seeing that one online, but then got to see Margene's shawl knit in the same yarn in real live person and was sold. Trust me, just gorgeous.
That is the second SPL shawl for me in the last two shawls I've knitted. Did you know there is a ravelry group for knitters of Susan's pattern? Well, there is and you should join. Even if you haven't yet knit one of her patterns, this group will provide the motivation. Or maybe the little raffling off of Susan's new pattern will spur you on. When the group hits 200 member mark, Susan will be sharing her newest pattern with a lucky winner. In case you haven't guessed, it is totally in my queue.
The yarn is so soft and wonderful to work with and even after a soaking and blocking retains the silk aroma that I love.
So, the Forest Canopy Shawl is next in my list of to-dos. I'm on a roll with lace and Susan, although my current WIP is not a SPL pattern. Five more rows, a bind off and a blocking......
I should have gotten a photo with my Spring Things Shawl, the beads on that complement this shawl nicely. I love wearing them together.
Sixty-five. I don't know how she does it! I feel so awkward in these photo shoots and Cheryl it looks like I am as calm and relaxed and used to being a model as Twiggy!
