My first finished knitting project - Feather & Fan Shawl
Woohoo! I'm so happy that I finished my shawl! I'm totally hooked on lacy shawls now too. I have few winter things to make and then I'm definitely making another (and another and another...) There are so many amazing lace patterns out there and tons of them are free on Ravelry.com! I think Ravelry is my new home away from home. I'd love to have such a place for sewing too.
This shawl is the Feather and Fan comfort shawl. Yarn is 2 skeins of Lorna's Laces sock yarn. I just went until I almost about ran out of yarn and bound off. Afterwards I found out about a stretchy bind-off which is essential for making those amazing pointy lace edges, but mine looks decent. :)
MMmmmm I love variegated yarn. This picture was during blocking.
