Heading down to Nashville to meet Paul's Mom in a few weeks and wanted to knit her something special. MMario's Faux Spanish Lace Shawl (that many of you have done so beautifully) fits the bill!
I am using Koigu "Painter's Palette" premium merino wool (50g/175yds/160m) in a beautiful speckled robin's egg blue with tones of purple. Mom tends to lean toward pastels... where I am a bold & dark color guy... so Paul helped me pick out a great "happy medium" yarn. While my LYS had this in the "Sock Yarn" section and the label suggests using a US3 needle (guage 28 sts/4") I am knitting it up using my brand new US7 Addi Turbo Lace circs - THANK YOU, PAUL! - and I think it's coming along nicely. Very excited to see it blocked.
I love patterns that are easy to work but knit up like you are a master! Thanks, MMario, for sharing the pattern.
