Finished knitting



The knitting is done. I only did 8 repeats because I wanted more of a shawlette than a full blown shawl. Tomorrow I will get to see the true beauty of this pattern when I block it.

Check out The Walker Treasury for a swatch of the original lace pattern as shown by Barbara Walker. It is called Sunspot in her book. SK did a brilliant job of translating it to a triangular shawl.

I can't wait for the unveil either. It's going to be lovely. How many balls did you end up using?

Wow, you knit that one really fast! Looking forward to seeing more pics after blocking. How many balls of Baby Silk did you use for your shawl?

I really want to do this one, but I'm need to work up my confidence by finishing my Luna in HW first. A BS shawl might take me forever...

There's that wonderful color again, Cate. I can't wait to see it blocked, it's gonna be something special.
