Forest in a flash!


I've deliberated over what to make next for a couple of days after finishing wicked, and eventually after chatting to jeanette who suggested I try lace, I cast on for the forest canopy shawl last night. It's off the needles and blocking,(unblocked piccie above) I can't believe how quick it was to make, about 5-6 hours of knitting. It's my first proper lace project, and never has blocking been so amazing! I know everybody says it but I think it has to be witnessed in person to see the transformation that occurs when you block lace!


I've already downloaded Spring things shawl and I think I may cast on for that this week aswell!!!!!
I think I may have found a new addiction:-)
Finished photos to follow as soon as its dry!

By the way, what's that yarn Terri? And I hadn't seen that other shawl pattern, think that might have to be put on my list.
