North Sea Shawl



Finally, it's done! Yeah! Five days BEFORE I leave for Florida and 8 full days before I see grandma and give it to her...I think I may be getting somewhere with the procrastination resolution.

Blocking in progress...thank god for the sofa bed



Fully blocked...albeit angled a bit.

Pattern Specs:

North Sea Shawl from Folk Shawls

Yarn Zephyr DOUBLED

I bought 2400 yards...I didn't use ANYWHERE near that much, but seeing as the beagle ate some and I have a fair amount left, I can't even come close to guesstimating how much I ACTUALLY used...maybe 1700 yards, but this is a very rough guess-timate.

Needles: Size 5 Addi's

I'm thinking about making another one (for me) in a solid Koigu. Waiting for a color to speak to me.

I'll post a photo of grandma in the shawl when I return from Florida...

Gorgeous! I'm so afraid of lace projects; they seem too complicated. The end result though, is beautiful!
