So I finally (!) blocked and photographed the Shetland Triangle Shawl! Can I just say that I loved, loved knitting this. It was a random project. There is no reason for it other than to knit it. And I was very worried I would lose interest b/c it wasn’t a goal-oriented situation. Turns out I’m perfectly fine with random lace.
Pattern: The Shetland Triangle Shawl from Wrap Style
Needles: Size 8 Knitpicks Options Needles
Yarn: 2.25 skeins of Silky Wool
Modifications: Thicker yarn and larger needles than the pattern called for, 11 or 12 pattern repeats (not totally sure), and I left off the last purl row so that the points wouldn’t be so pointy.
The verdict: Love. It. It was so much fun to knit – really the perfect blend of semi-mindlessness with interestingness. This would be a great first shawl project for someone new to the whole lace game.
Ok. On to the pretty.

And my personal fav.. the comparisons:
So I may not have a clear event to wear this shawl to, but I’m thinking that the day that I wear something this pretty is an event in and of itself.
Now to find something to wear with it….
