Wing-'o-the-Moth Shawl




I finished the shawl in October 2007 and finally blocked it May 2008. I like the waffles the stitch pattern made and did not want to block them out.
I did not apply too much tension when blocking barely enough to open the lace but not so that it would loose texture. The end result is almost what I wanted.




Pattern by Anne Hanson
Yarn: My Handspun
Indigo Dyed Corridale. The roving was dyed at the Wasatch Woolpack Park City Retreat July, 2006
Aprox 1200 yds
Needles: US 6



I like the color variation, it blends in but does not strike or pool.

Smarty, now you can spin your own lace yarn and it is just beautiful. Congratualations on such a great job. You are a terrific knitter.

I am seeing a bit of sun today. Hoping the weather holds for a good picture session. (g)

Wow, Laritza! Those shawls are beyond fabulous. The Forest Path one with the lilies of the valley and leaeskzxq5m, etc, is one of the loveliest I have ever seen, Joanna

So beautiful! Every time that I visit and you show something like that, I start to feel guilt about my lace shawl languishing in it's bag......
