It's funny...

I'm the host of this KAL, and yet I've neglected to post any of the shawls I've knit in the past year or so. I thought I'd remedy that oversight and show you what I've sent out in the past year. I seem to have this flaw where all of my intricate knitting is for other people (something else that needs to be remedied in the near future I suppose). Anyhow, the work that I've done...

Flower Basket Shawl Detail
A Flower Basket Shawl(ette) for my mom in law; blogged here.

Seraphim for my grandmother in law; blogged here.

A SwallowTail Shawl for my aunt in law; blogged here.

Heartland Lace Shawl
A Heartland Lace Shawl for a good friend on her wedding day; blogged here.

Butterfly Rivers
Right now I'm working on this scarf for a friend who's made me feel so welcome in our new(ish) country; blogged here.

Next in my queue is a Shetland Triangle for another aunt in law. Then either Anne's Wing 'o the Moth Shawl or Jane Sowerby's Hexagonal Spider's Web Shawl for myself. That is of course, if I can ever clear all of the gift knits from my queue; which is unfortunately yet to be determined.
The drool over those two shawls is liable to drown me in the meantime... oh well, at least the interim knitting is engaging. :)

How lovely they all are--and I enjoyed looking at the other photos on your blog. If you start Wing of the Moth, please show it. I hope to do that one later in the year (after Bee Fields), and I'd like to see your progress.

WOW. Great photos of your lace shawls. I haven't thought about giving a shawls to a family member. I would love to if they take care of it.

They all seem so perfectly knitted. Sure everyone the shawls have gone to are really happy.

Your photos are really beautiful. The knitting too, of course.
I`ve allways taken full capture photos, but the details come more alive this way. Great job!

Thank you! <3

Marjorie: I'm going with the Wing of the Moth, there's just *something* about it. I'll be sure to take photos and post them in a timely manner. :)

Rina: The family members and friends they go to seem to love them, and store them wrapped in acid free tissue paper in lidded boxes. It works well for me since I love to knit lace, but don't really have many places to wear the shawls.

Morgana: lol! There's a mistake in each one except the Swallow Tail (and thats only because I caught the mistake early on). ;) It's all in how you photograph them.

Sissel: I like the detail photos because it's what I really like to see from other knitters. In most product photos they show the whole thing but they almost never do close ups to show you the stitch patterns; it used to frustrate me to no end.

cheers everyone,
