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!

Your leaf lace shawl is so beautiful! You inspired me to purchase the pattern. I'd like to know where you got your yarn from. Did you order on-line or did you purchase it at your local yarn shop?

Hi knit-a-bit! I purchased the yarn at my local yarn shop, but there are online sellers, like www.patterworks.com, that also sell it. Dale of Norway is a pretty popular yarn and it's easy to find online. I will use this yarn again for another shawl. It worked up so nicely...it's nice and soft, too!
