My favourite thing about knitting lace is seeing the pattern finally reveal itself when the finished article is blocked into shape. So it probably follows that my least favourite thing is the hours of staring at a crumpled mass of string that comes before.
There’s some pretty lace in here, I promise.
I may not be enjoying the full effect of Vernal Equinox’s glorious design, but I’m definitely enjoying the yarn. Malabrigo Silkpaca is, as the name suggests, a blend of silk and alpaca – super soft and lovely to work with.
I can’t wait to get this shawl off the needles and onto the blocking board.
