Our eldest son and daughter-in-law are visiting with their four children. We always enjoy their visits. They spend a big portion of their time while here at Disneyland or the beach. Today, Davis came home from Disneyland with her face painted, just as I was trying to figure out a photo session for my latest knitting finish. I couldn't resist having her be my model. Her gorgeous blue eyes enhanced with the face painting and my Brickless Shawl made for a fun photo shoot.
This shawl is an easy knit and a fun way to make lace without a lot of crazy counting. It's just three row combinations to make the pattern, repeated five times. I sweated it to the very end wondering if I would have enough yarn to finish. I had to cut the last section of lace short and cast off using another yarn in navy. It works and unless I told you, I don't think it would be noticeable. This shawl is huge, measuring over 100 inches from tip to tip and about 16 inches at it's widest point.
I have to admit that when I finished knitting this shawl I was not happy. It looked very "old lady-ish". But YOWZA! After I blocked it, the lace opened up and I just love it. It's soft and squishy and I am looking forward to wearing it. It will look so pretty with jeans and a cute top.
