The Kiri is complete!

Here she sits on a post in my garden. Isn't she beautiful? I can't believe just how easy and fast that it worked up. Am I getting better at lace, or was this just a simple pattern? Either way, I just LOVE how it worked up.

I used Henry's Attic Kona Superwash, about 8 oz, using my Addis size 8.

I thought that I had GOBS of this yarn left, so I cast on for the Ene Scarf. I am almost finished the 3rd repeat of chart #3, and I have almost used a full pound of the Kona. Oh well, it will most definitely NOT be a scarf, but a shawl instead.

This is lovely!

I just purchased the Summer 2006 Interweave Knits magazine which includes a lovely icarus shawl ... but I think it's a bit too hard for my first. It also contains an incredibly brief primer on lace knittting ... but I can't seem to figure out how to get started on it.

SO, if your don't mind a joiner-on copycat (although I won't be using the same yarn), where might I find a pattern/instructions for this shawl that you knit so well?

The Kiri Shawl is gorgeous! Isn't it? It was designed by Polly Outhwaite and is available on her website And one of the nicest things... it's free!

So, girl... be a joiner-on copycat like the rest of us and knit away! I can't wait to see what you do with this great pattern.

If you need any help, give a holler!
