I don't know if you'll be able to see in this small picture, but about half way through the body of the shawl, I must have skipped a row, thus switching RS for WS. I didn't notice until I had the shawl laid out flat, blocking. Oh well, I'm sure very few will notice while I'm wearing the shawl since it will be either bunched up or in motion with me.

Pattern: Curved Shawl from Victorian Lace Today
Yarn: Alpaca Cloud Autumn Heather
Needles: Harmony Wood Size 3, 24" circular and dpns

I am soooo addicted to lace knitting now. I'd picked out my next project before this one was finished. I'd forgotten to wind my hanks into balls last week, so I came into work on Saturday morning to do it - I knew I couldn't get through the whole weekend without starting the Myrtle Leaf Shawl, also from Victorian Lace Today, in Campfire, a discontinued color of Shadow Merino lace yarn.

Also, the potholders are done.

Yarn: Bare Peruvian Wool Worsted Weight
Dyes: Jacquard Acid Dyes emerald and a sprinkling of sapphire blue
Pattern: Hot Out of the Oven spiral potholders

Absolutely lovely! Inspires me to pick up a lace project that has been languishing.

My summer knitting resolution is to use up as many of my leftover yarns as possible, so the potholders are looking good, too!

I love both the shawl and the pot holders, but I really like the idea for felted pot holders!!!

I started last August and just finished last week, but there were lots of periods of inactivity. I would knit in spurts, and the progress was always noticeable when I was actually knitting on it.

Oh lord - how long did that take to knit?

Your shawl looks beautiful! Now I want another one! I think I'll put one in my to-do queue (which is way too long), and I'll choose between the Moss, Tide Pool, or Papaya Alpaca Cloud when I start it. I'll also make it a little bigger this time too, like you did, so my arms are covered more when the shawl is tied. I can't see your error in the photograph, so I doubt people would notice it when you wear it.

I've started a lace shaw using the Alpaca Cloud, but got side tracked. It isn't nearly as intricate as yours, but I haven't had my husband build a blocking frame yet, so if is takes a while that is OK. The change in pattern is only barely noticeable. I'd use it.

Your shawl looks stunning!

Looking great, Tina! The shawl is just beautiful. Today I finish the binding off of the Gypsy shawl for the shop. Tonight I will block it. Lace is fun to knit. I love it.

The felting turned out just beautiful. Looks great on the counter. My dye socks are progressing. I am onthe heel flaps now. The hard thing is to decide what to work on at the shop or work on at home. So many choices. LOL
