Shawl Knitting Biathlon - COMPLETE!


Someone pass me the gold medal!! My Biathlon of Shawl Knitting is complete!! Two shawls in 7 days...that's got to be a world's record! Here's the shawl before blocking and after blocking. I used DK weight yarn and a size 10 needle, which I've used before. I like the open lacey look, but next time, I might step down the needle size just a bit.
One more thing....like all my other shawls, these will be given to the local cancer centre to warm and comfort someone undergoing cancer treatment.

The shawl is beautiful and I love the color! But most of all I love who you are giving it to. I hadn't thought of the shawls for cancer patients -just blankets. But a shawl is a great idea. Thank you for your generosity!

Thanks, Brooke! And thanks for the reminder that I need to start working on some more lap blankets...can't forget about the men who need comfort and warmth!
