Luscious Lace

I am so excited to be showing off this little beauty :-)  Introducing my Summer Mystery KAL 

Laid out for blocking - it grew a lot!!
Trying to catch the lace work through the sun
I've done a little bit of lace work before on cardigans but never anything this detailed.  Starting at the bottom is definitely the way to go - I think I'd have given up in the other direction lol.  I used a Zauberball on a 3.75mm needle and its taken just under a month (with a bit of other WIP work in between!)

Now how do you wear a shawlette???

Round the neck?
to the side?
Think this one may well be a present as I have someone in mind who looks very good in those colours.

I've been busy doing my Toy Challenge week too and have finished two Babushka dolls.  They were very quick makes.  Really looking forward to giving these to the girls at the end of the week :-)  Just a couple of gnomes and a toy bag each to make now.


Dont forget to pop over to Tami's Amis blog to admire all this weeks finished objects

  5. Your mystery shawl is fantastic! I love the subtle color changes in the zauberball and how it sort of brings out the pattern instead of obscuring it like other multicolored yarns sometimes do.

  12. Oh my, I'm not usually a toy person but I love those Babushka dolls. What sweet faces!

    Your shawl is just gorgeous -- isn't Zauberball great for adding the drama? Someone will be lucky to get such a pretty gift.

  15. Oh wow, that shawl! You are a nicer person than I to consider giving it as a present, I don't know if I'd be able to let it out of my claws! The colours are amazing, the pattern is so intricate and lovely, and it looks great on you, too. :D

    And I love the babushkas. They look like a really lovely shape to hold in your hands, and I hope your girls love them. (They definitely will.)
