More Lace

Since it's Lacevember and my project is going slowly and uninterestingly, I'm going to post some photos of my first lace shawl, the Meadow Flowers shawl from Knitter's Stash.

I used Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud, color is Tidepool. I doubled the yarn, and I'm not sure about needle size, 8 probably?. . . This was a little hard to knit for a beginner because it's garter stitch and it's easy to forget whether you're on a pattern row or a return row. Other than that, it was quite simple.

I made quite a few mistakes on it anyway, because I was watching Donnie Darko, a confusing movie, while I worked on it. It's funny how you remember what you were doing or where you were while knitting an item.

Here she is blocking:

I really love this yarn, and I might someday make another lace shawl JUST to use this yarn again.

The Kiri shawl is moving right along, I should finish the second ball of yarn today or tomorrow. I plan to knit one repeat and the edging with the third ball. She looks like a wad of crap on the needles right now, so I'll wait to post a pic until the blocking stage. . .
