I’ve finally finished my shawl, and I could not be more pleased. I really love it.
I decided to use the short version instructions that were thoughtfully provided by the pattern’s designer, rather than trying to finish the long version. If I had, this shawl would have been huuuuuuge. As it is, it’s big – 7 feet across and about 3 feet from tip to top. I really adore snuggling up with it though. It’s so warm, and I love looking at the subtle blue-green shimmer of the alpaca. Yum.
Pattern: Mystic Waters Lace Shawl
Yarn: Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud (100% baby alpaca, laceweight)
Needles: AddiTurbo Lace circulars, size 3
I never get tired of the magic of blocking lace.
I had a bit of trouble pinning it out, and actually there’s a weird pointy bit on the top where I stretched the pin too tightly. After I wear it for a while, I might reblock it at some point.
Great pattern, fun knit-a-long, and a lovely final product.
