Kiri, Flower Basket Shawl

I pulled Kiri off of the needle, so I could get an idea just how big the shawl was getting. I'm twenty rows past the pattern's called for point to start edge rows. I'll have to think about how many more row repeats I want to add before starting the edging. I've still got a fair amount of yarn left on the ball pictured, as well as another unwound 850 yards.

In the meantime, I went ahead and started the Flower Basket shawl:

This is some of the Mango yarn I ordered tons of from Handpainted Yarns. Four of the five hanks were all the same, but this poor little hank had way more of the lighter tones than the others.

I have a lot of lace on the needles. That's a good thing, because-- eventually, stuff does get finished!

A question for all of you-- Who here has tried the Addi Lace needles? I really like the Knit Picks ones, but after reading all the rave reviews on the Addis, I'm wondering if it would be worthwhile to spend the money for them. I knit most of my lace on either size 5 or 7 needles, so it's not like I'd need a big variety of sizes. What I would require is more than one needle in the same size.

I am wondering about the Addi Lace too. I did some research last week and the needles are from US1-US6 in various length. They are pretty reasonably priced. Ebay has great deals on them.

I love your Kiri. I am working on one as well. The FBS is looking great too. Can't wait to see more. Great job!

I have! Love love love them! I was working on the Shallowtail from Interweave and the k1,yo,k1,yo,ki reverse side was p5t, but it was driving me crazy with the regular Addis so I got the Addi Lace and WOW, that p5t was so much faster. A breeze! That point really does work for a reason. Check out my blog to see the finished pics of Shallowtail.
