Rona Lace Shawl is done

May I present:


My very own Rona Lace Shawl. This took me about a month to finish it, but now it's done. It was a generous christmas gift from Keri, thank you very much. The pattern is from Knit Picks and it was knitted with 3 skeins (about 1 oz was left over) Knit Picks Shadow in Vineyard on american size 5 (3,75mm) interchangable cables from Knit Picks in 24 and 32" size and a size D crochet hook. Don't ask me how many stitches there are all together, but I know there were over 1,000 stitches on the cable by the time I was at the end.


Here are some close up pics:


I hope the finished shawl is an inspiration for all those that wanted to knit it, but have been to scared or who left this project slip into the UFO box. It's absolutely doable and the crochet edging is a little different for me, but not really a problem at all, just a little time consuming.

Holy crow! This is amazing. I'm just trying to learn to do lace and find it daunting. That you did this in a month is nothing short of a miracle in my mind! It's beautiful. Does this yarn split? The yarn I'm working on for my little lace scarf splits horribly so I don't think I want to do a big project with it.

This shawl is positively stunning. I have the pattern and I have been planning to knit it. There just aren't enough hours in the day to do what I want to do. Maybe by the summer.

That looks absolutely beautiful! You should be so very proud of yourself! I know I am! Man, if that were mine, I'd be livid if someone even THOUGHT of sneezing near it! haha
