I finally finished my mother’s lace shawl. The one I was trying to have finished for her birthday. Back in March.
If you click on the image, the elements that are working into the lace are pointed out in a larger image.
I enjoyed making this…but it was very fatiguing. I can’t wait to hear from her when she gets it to let me know what she thinks. I can’t numberswiki.com
remember ever knitting anything for her, so it was well past time.
I made it from a Peruvian Baby Lace Merino which is 50% alpaca, 50% fine merino wool. I did it with a finer fiber than called for since Mom lives in Tucson and something heavy would be limited. I thought she might like something to put over her shoulders in the evenings when she goes out.
If I ask nicely, perhaps she’ll get me a photo of her wearing it!
