Kiri, on the needles again!

After all the talk around here about Kiri, I've decided to start another one, in my sunny yellow yarn from Handpainted Yarn.

Kiri is such an easy knit. One you memorize the row repeats, you don't even need to check the instructions on each active row. You knit. You knit some more. You take the knitting with you everywhere, and the next thing you know-- you're doing the edging rows!
I'm doing my Kiri larger than the 880 yards of yarn Polly used in her original pattern. I plan to use at least 1200, maybe even going so far as using 1760 yards.
In other lace news, I still have the Spiral Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today OTN. After finishing the Feather and Fan shawl, I'm not interested in another round shawl right now. They are fun to knit, and a chore to block.
I also have more yarn on the way from Knit Picks. I've had the Adamas Shawl pattern from them for over a year, and I have yet to knit it. It's created the same way as the Kiri shawl--you cast on five stitches, then start the increase process, set aside the stitches for the center rib and the edges, and you knit diamonds.
What's my favorite thing about the triangular shawl? You can make it as big or as small as you want, without a lot of fanfare!

What a sunny and lovely shawl. I love the color. I'd been thinking of knitting a shawl in a yellow. Can't wait to see the final results.

I love the color of your Kiri!

I have the Cap Shawl from VLT on the needles, and it should be a FO by early next week. I'm really interested in seeing another one out in Blog Land.
