This is my favorite shawl yet! I was actually a bit afraid of this one as it uses a chart for the pattern…. That’s not my usual favorite, but the way Beth designs and writes her knitting patterns makes for successful, enjoyable knitting!
All I need to do it finish letting it dry… I am a terrible blocker and I usually just skip that part (along with swatching……) but with lace it is important to the final product for look and drape to be blocked. Then I have the ends to sew in and clean up.
Here is the pattern on Ravelry:
I’m just so happy with the way this turned out. There are a lot of thoughts and prayer knit into this one, the recipient needs to be wrapped in some love….
I started another Henslowe and am to the ‘good’ part now of the lace pattern, but if I wasn’t I would un-knit it and knit this shawl pattern again. I actually need two more made before… well… a certain gift giving time of the year…. SO you may see another in teh future.
One last note…. My Good Friend Janice at: http://www.janicefergusonsews.com/blog/
