I’ve been traveling so much this summer that I’ve had time to knit a lot of lace. It’s funny how I knit, knit, knit, block, and then the shawl sits for so long before I photograph it. If I was a better photographer, I might get that done sooner.
I love the Myrtle Lace Shawl! It’s long enough that the rectangle wraps around well and doesn’t slide off too frequently. One of my main criteria for wearable shawls is that they stay on my shoulders with little to no adjusting during the day – I need my hands for other things.
I also love knitting with Shadow – for so many reasons. Here’s my staff pick review.
I had one hank plus about a third of another left over from the Myrtle Leaf Shawl. My sister had seen that shawl in progress and liked the color, so I made a scarf for her birthday next month with the rest of the yarn. I just knit until I ran out of yarn, so it’s a very generous length. I think having a bit of Merino wrapped around her neck will be just right for a San Jose winter. (My antique-store-find Spanish bust has to serve as a model since my sister doesn’t know about this scarf yet. He might have been chilly.)
