#61 of 365 - and Another One Done














I started and finished 198 Yards of Heaven. So called as the pattern is suppose to use less than 200 yards of yarn. I knit this one with the remainder of the yarn from the Yvaine Meets Ishbel that I finished the day before yesterday.

I had only about 5 feet of yarn left after casting off, it was that close...

Here's the obligatory photo of a part of me, pinning out a point in the lace.

I have already cast on for another one, this time on big needles with 5 strands of yarn held together. The yarns are the VERY last of the stash I had from my Mum's Needlework Shop. They are comprised of a silk and wool, a cotton chenille, a cotton with a metallic wrap and a slubby mohair. The only change I will make to the pattern is on the edging lace motif. I will stocking stitch the points instead of doing them, as the pattern states, in garter stitch.

I really enjoyed knitting that pattern, i think it was the first time I knit a lace triangular shawl!

I used Malabrigo, and I wear it all the time.

@Anne, nope this one is going to England to the hatmaker in hopes that she'll come thru with the MotB hat for moi. But I can indeed knit you one, if you'd like. What colour?
