FO - Shetland Triangle Lace Shawl
I have another finished project! I'm telling you...there's nothing quite like the feeling of accomplishment!

I began with this yarn...



That is Malabrigo Sock Yarn. The colorway is Ravelry Red.

I used 1.31 skeins of yarn, leaving enough leftovers for a small project in the future (I'm thinking fingerless gloves).

The pattern for this shawl came in the book Wrap Style, which I'd won on a New Year's Eve Knitalong that Sandy hosts here on KnittingHelp each year...


I began working on the project July 14, and I cast off on September 4th. Of course, progress would have gone much faster, but I was a little busy getting my new classroom set up. Priorities must be in proper order, don't you know.

I knit this project on size 5 needles and completed twelve (12) body pattern repeats...four more than the pattern suggests. I had seen this shawl in all of its glory in the yarn store where I had purchased the yarn, and it was a large version. I wanted something that wouldn't fall off of my shoulders.

Ok...now that I have described the particulars, I'll move right along to the pictures...











Here are a few close-ups of the pattern...








I can tell that I am going to enjoy wearing this shawl. The drape is so lovely, and the additional pattern repeats allow this shawl to sit comfortably on my shoulders while still being able to move around.








This was a fun, easy knit. If you've ever wanted to make a shawl, I highly encourage you to give this pattern a try. It's deceptively simple, and the result is FABULOUS!
