There has been an ongoing discussion among lace knitters. Do we wear the lace shawls and wraps we knit. And if we do, how??? So, not that I’m the fashion police of all things lace, but here’s one example.
I have 13 finished lace projects in my drawer right now, and I will have to say that this is the one I wear the most. I love the colors and the fact that it’s not so fragile.
Since I finished this before I started blogging, I’ll give you the details. The pattern is Irish Diamond Shawl. It’s in the Folk Shawls book by Cheryl Oberle. I used 12 colors of Koigu in this project. I thoroughly enjoyed knitting this, and it makes me want to dig out the Koigu stash right now!!!
I hadn’t worn this shawl with a shawl pin before this morning, and I’ll have to say it made it much more comfortable to wear. I just stuck the pin in never thought about adjusting the shawl again.
This pin was purchased at Chico’s. Thanks, Mom!!!
I’m back to working on Honey’s My Hero Sweater. By the way, he was my photographer this morning. He did a pretty good job with the artsy shots, huh?
