I powered my way through the Percy Shawl as I really wanted to be able to post it to it’s intended recipient as soon as possible. For no other reason than I really want to give it to her.
Because I can, here is Percy in photos!
It always impresses me just how much lace needs to be blocked, and how little stitch definition you get before blocking.
Off the needles.
All pinned out.
I feel terribly bad for having no posts lined up for last week when I suddenly got busy. I’ll try and do better in the future I promise!
I have begun this shawl once before, though never finished it. I just never got my needles in the right groove. So it sat there for an incredibly long time, languishing at the bottom of the yarn pile.
But I pulled it out, ripped it back to the beginning and began again last week. A couple of nights effort and I had already done eight repeats of the first of three charts.
It’s in 100% Mulberry Silk from Fibreworks. I think the colourway was Sarsparilla …
There has also been work on the Amaryllis Mittens.
All that I have left to do is attach the thumbs! So close!
