Print O' The Wave Shawl

Kerry's picture

Just off the blocking wires, Euny Jang's Print o' the Wave shawl. The yarn is Jamieson & Smith Laceweight, shade L40, and I used 6 balls of it. Needles are 3.5mm.

There are a couple of errors in the pattern where I just had to fudge it.

It is beautiful, Kerry. I am really hankering to try some lace work but, quite frankly, it terrifies me. I am so afraid I will never get beyond a few rows. Also, I admit, you saying that there are some mistakes in the pattern doesn't inspire confidence either. lol. Ah well, maybe some day.

An amazing piece! I'm currently working on Fiddlesticks' Peacock Shawl, and if it's only 1/4 as lovely as your piece, I'll be pleased! I've said it before, but let me say it again: Thanks so much for the inspiration to keep working. Lace does eventually get finished, doesn't it?

It is all so fabulous.

It is all so fabulous. Another envy-making piece.

Stunning really, it's geometric yet fluid. It reminds me a bit of M.C. Escher.
