This blog hasn't had an FO in a good long while, so I thought I'd turn back the clock and recap what is my last lace shawl of 2008, my Peacock Seraphim.
Although I am extremely proud of what this project represents, this is overshadowed by a longstanding frustration with my photographic skills. (A point which no matter how much time passes, I cannot seem to withhold harping on. Ack! What a whiner I am!) My pictures do not capture the vibrant color and hue of this fabulous yarn.
100% Superwash Merino fingering weight
About 907 yards (or nearly twice as much yarn as my prior two shawls). The ease at which I've been tackling larger projects makes me feel like a "real" knitter. Not that it should, but you know, I'm as insecure as the next knitter, so it does.
Knitpicks Harmony Wood Options, US6 / 4.0mm
Seraphim Shawl by Miriam Felton, AKA Mimknits. (More than one item fell into the cart when I purchased this pattern, so have something to look forward to, too!) The pattern was a breeze to read all the way through. I absolutely love lace charts. If only sweater patterns could be written via chart, I might actual try one.
The only mod I made is that I disregarded the bind off instructions and went with the Evelyn Clark K2, K2tog bind off from Knitting Lace Triangles.
Began September 19, 2008, finished November 12, 2008.
I see many more shawls, and more Miriam Felton patterns, in my future.
