Winter Wonderland Shawl Finished!

It was snowing today! A perfect day to take photos of the Winter Wonderland Shawl. I had some help from my dear friend, Madge. This shawl is hard to photograph because you want all the snowflakes to show and it's next to impossible to get them all in at once. Here goes!

I love it. Yay!

Oh, there were a couple of more corrections that I didn't have in the last post. Basically, when the second to the last row ends with 27 stitches, the last row should end with a k2tog instead of just a k2, because you want to end with 26 sts for each side of the hexagons. And if you accidentally end up with 27 sts on a hexagon (like I did) just take the two stitches that were supposed to be knit together up at the same time when you are grafting. It completely dissappears. No prob.

I have just finished winding up a skein of Skacel Merino Lace to start my next big lace project, even though I still have the Heere Be Dragones on the needles. I just can't help myself...

That is so lovely. I want to make one too someday. It's so cool. I'm curious. What's your next project?

Ooh Bereni,

Berner! You've done it again, a masterpiece. It truly is lovely AND you took such beautiful, artistic photos of it. Gorgeous dahrling, just gorgeous. I'm quite jealous.

Your shawl looks wonderfull! I'm also trying to make one, but I'm not an advanced knitter and I got stuck at
the autor's indication on how to make that cable cast on for the points. If I follow the indications I end up with a mess. I tried to make the points using crochet chain, but I'm not sure that this is the way.
