Flower Basket Shawl
Finally! Done with the Flower Basket Shawl :) The pattern isn't that hard, I could easily memorize each row... but why does it have to be so easy to make mistakes when knitting lace?! You forget one little yo, and suddenly you have to rip 3 rows *sigh* This has been in the yarn basket, in the not-so-used-chair and in a bag for longer time than I've been knitting on it... having me staring at it, trying to make it behave. (well it didn't, I just got so mad at it, that I didn't want to let it win, so I knit, ripped and knit again. That'll teach it a lesson!)
Right now it's blocking on a towel, getting nicer and nicer :)
Pattern: Flower Basket Shawl from Interweave Knits Fall 2004
Yarn: Færøsk Strømpegarn, 80% wool 20% nylon
Needles: 4,5 mm
Finished measurements: 130 cm x 65 cm
I have enough yarn for another shawl, and I think the colour of the yarn (dark cold brown) is great for it... but I don't think I'll have patience to knit another one right now ;) So for now I'll just enjoy this one!
