I can't believe you'd give that away! I think I'd be way too attached after all that work.

The thing is that I know I would never wear it. Ever. Shawls are just not me. My daughter, however, will love it. I just want to try making it and have the pleasure of giving it to her.

If, however, it is unbelievably gorgeous, maybe I'll make a smaller version as a wall hanging or something.

I got my pattern today!

It really doesn't look hard at all. Just the basic stitches you'd expect in a pattern like this together with lots of straightforward knitting and purling, and the back is all purled. I think I'm more worried about the crocheted edging, but I'll face that when I get to it.

I got yarn from elann which I thought was the same weight, but it is lighter. I played with a swatch on Saturday and in order to get gauge without it being really loose, I'll need to double the yarn. It had a nice body to it that way, too. Luckily I have enough, because I'm ridiculous when it comes to yarn buying.

Unfortunately, I'm also inattentive since I ordered the wrong color the first time around. It's a lovely pink ( pushed the wrong button I guess) so I'll keep it, but I want to do this in the lavendar. Maybe I'll do the pink too, if it's as straitforward as I think it tis.

I just couldn't resist. I started it with the pink just to see how it looks with the two yarns together. It's too early to tell. I have to wait for the pattern to 'emerge' more, but I'm thinking that two strands might not work out. I'll cross my fingers. . . well, my toes, anyway--my fingers are busy!

Keep us posted with pics Ingrid!!

When I start mine, (WHEN I get around to it!) I'll post pics too. I'm doing mine with a lace weight yarn. It's Lorna's Laces "Helen's Lace" in Somerset. :D

That is gorgeous yarn. It will look stunning in that. If it weren't for all the p2togtbls, it would be a rather fast knit.

Still waiting on my camera though.
