Introducing Omelet. I used Madelinetosh Tosh Lace in the color Curiosity. This is my first lace weight shawl. I have knit fingering weight and heavier shawls, but once I was done with this one I was awed by it. There is just something about the lightness and airiness of it. Lace weight is the kind of shawl I imagine elegant knitterly women wearing over their cocktail dresses.
I wasn’t sure how to block this. For some reason points just weren’t working so its kind of a round wonky thing.
My children love shawls. My 17 month old has been trying to wrap this around himself all day.
It came out a lot bigger than I thought it would but its the perfect size I think.
After finishing this large project I felt that two should take its place. I finally got to cast on with my Tanis purple label yarn and Im making Pointelle. I also cast on Lettuce Leaf Scarf . Casting on two projects in the place of one seems kind of nutty and counter productive but life is short so knit while ya can. Happy Halloween!
