The Wedding Ring Shawl is DONE!
This morning I had 6 points to go and decided I was going to finish it today. Now it is done done done!!!!!
The pattern is by Sharon Miller from Heirloom Knitting. It is project #16 with a limited number of patterns available. I used Shetland cobweb yarn and needles size 2.5 mms. Started in late August 2005 and finished it TODAY. It will be worn as a bridal shawl by my cousin Maria Jose who is getting married by late Summer. I still have to block it and dress it but it is done, done, done!
It is knitted lace, meaning every row is a pattern row. When I was working on the border it would take me 2 hours to knit a row. The points for the edge took 20 minutes each.
I am very happy with the shawl, it is a piece of art and if I am not mistaken and according to Sharon, I am the first person to finish it after her of course. Click to see more pictures here.I will post more pictures when I block it.
