WIP: Feather and Fan Shawl
This is a shawl that I am making for my gf's Mom. She's done a lot for us in the past year, so I wanted to make something nice for her to show my appreciation. I'm using Knit Picks Shine Sport in Blush. I love the feel of the yarn, and will definitely have to find another project to make something for myself with this yarn.



A closer look at the detail.

So pretty -what a great color and a thoughtful gift! For all the years I have been knitting, I've yet to do feather and fan....must add to the to-do list!

Looks awesome so far! I'm sure she'll love it! I love KnitPicks Shine yarns too, I've used them a lot.

I love it!! It's a great pattern. And the thing is, it's very easily memorized, so you don't have to look at a pattern constantly. I used the Lace 1, 2, 3 pattern from knitpicks. The pattern gives you the number of stitches to cast on for a scarf, a throw, and of course a shawl.
