FO - Omelet Shawl
Hi all!

It's me...your wayward AuburnChick...back after another year of teaching. We have two half days left and then I can party for a couple of months!

With school winding down, I was FINALLY able to finish the Omelet Shawl I cast on last June. It's never taken me a year to finish something before, but I had a lot of professional development this year, so I didn't have much free time.



I used Malabrigo Lace Yarn and size 3 needles. The pattern was fairly easy once I got a bit of assistance with how the panels worked. The designer was great about responding to questions.

I knit the pattern one time through, not adding any extra rows.

I appreciate you looking! Enjoy the rest of the photos, which were taken by yours truly using the self-timer on my camera and a tripod. It was a fun photo session!

That is stunning (and even better that you are finally finished)! Delayed gratification must be sweet!

Wow! That is the prettiest shawl I've seen yet I think, and I've seen some really great ones. You do such beautiful work.
