the shawl dilemma
With the final stitch bound off I can finally spread out the finished shawl to see it in its entirety. It's not completely finished - tonight I'll weave in the ends, soak it and block it properly - but even so, I'm thrilled. I just love the way the lace patterns repeat, intersect and flow out to the edges. One thing though, I don't wear shawls. I can't entirely figure out what to do with it now. Worse still, I want to knit more lace which poses a bit of a dilemma. Does it make sense to knit more shawls? Hmmm.
Next I'm going to swatch my Noro Shirakaba to see whether it's suitable for this Tea Leaves Cardigan pattern. This might be nice cardigan to wear over summer t-shirts in the air-conditioned chill of my workplace.
