Or, in other words, three shawls.
It took about a third of the skein so I had plenty left over for more lace knitting. The wonderful KiwiPurler blogged about her current lace knitting project and, of course, I had to give Evelyn A Clark’s Prairie Rose Lace shawl a go. It’s a lovely little shawlette and I wore it nearly every day last week.
I bought 40g of silver-lined glass beads from Craft Basics in York and added three per point:
There’s another 100g skein and a bit left of this yarn and I’m planning something with lots of beads – this was a little practice.
This is a nice and easy design that’s quick to knit. I’m not too keen on lattices made from (k2tog, yo) but this works well with the wide lace border. Neither am I a fan of picot cast off, but I always like the result.
So, like the weather, there were plenty of shawls in April.
