Peacock Feathers Shawl


Wooo! Finished lace shawl!

This is by far the most complicated thing I've made. Not the largest, the insane Dr. Who scarf would be the largest, but that thing is just garter stitch so not complicated at all. I'm really happy with how it turned out. And it's nice to know that I can do lace. It requires a lot more out of me than most other knitting, but with a little extra concentration I can do it.

This was my mom's Christmas present. I told her she is not to expect anything like this every year! It took me more than three months of continuous effort and that's something that's hard for me. I do better if I can switch around a lot, so deadline knitting and I don't really get along very well.

The yarn is lovely. It's smooth and has a kind of shine to it (I think that's the silk?). I'm not sure how much of it I used since I forgot to weigh the finished shawl (which would at least give me an approximation) but the pattern says it's 1260 yards so I'm sure it was something around that. I still have a ton left on the cone.

The pattern is wonderful. I showed a picture of the finished shawl to someone at work and the first thing they said was "it looks like peacock feathers". Which it does!

And here's a bunch more pictures:
