Leaf Lace shawl #2 complete!

Another Leaf Lace shawl complete! And again, this is for the local cancer centre, where it will be given to someone undergoing cancer treatment. It took a full week to complete on a size 8 Addi Turbo 32" circular needle. The yarn is Dalegarn (Dale of Norway) Falk. It washed and blocked beatifully. This shawl is wonderful in sport-weight yarn. I used a just about 10 skeins, which was about 1000 yards, to make a large shawl.

I'm getting "shawl burnout"...time to make another lap throw!

WIP - Fiber Trends Leaf Lace shawl #2

Another Leaf Lace shawl, this time in Dalegarn's Falk in a pretty pink. This will be used by the local cancer centre's display for breast cancer awareness month (which is October). I need to get it done FAST! The last leaf lace shawl took just a week, so I hope this one also goes quickly. I'm using a size 8 needle this time as this yarn is a sport weight. I've just started the second skein, so I better get knitting!

Second Flower Basket Shawl completed!

Someone stop me! Get another Flower Basket Shawl, again for the local cancer centre. This was knit in OnLine Linie 21 - Marly in Newport Blue. It took 10 skeins of this DK weight yarn on a size 8 32" Addi Turbo circular needle. This yarn is very springy and it loosened up significantly when it was washed. This was started on August 28 and completed on September 4. It was a long weekend of knitting furiously!
