I can't resist a really nice yarn or a really nice shawl pattern ...
This pattern is the Stacy Shawl by Wendy D. Johnson from her new book "Wendy Knits Lace." It's a wonderful book and I highly recommend it to either new lace knitters or experienced ones. I already have the book because the publisher asked me to write a review. I first knit a couple of projects so I can get the feel of the way the patterns are written. In this case, I am very very happy with all aspects of this book. I'm working on the review now and I'm giving Wendy high marks on this one. There's at least a half dozen more knits in this book I want to do!
This shawlette was a pleasure to knit and only took 6 days including the day & a half to do the knitted on boarder. Another day to block ... and I'm "In Love" once again.
Just look at the detail. Of course, I had a lovely yarn to work with too ... Dream in Color Everlasting.
The next picture shows a closer likeness to what this color looks like in person ...
From the same book, I also knit up the lace cowl that is easy enough for a beginner lace knitter to do ... and came out so lovely using the Madeline Tosh DK yarn.
So what's next ... more lace?? You bet!!
