Leaf Lace Shawl October 10, 2006

Leaf_lace_2006_1 Leaf Lace Shawl is finished.  I guess I started it over a year ago but was too tight when using the size 5 needle called for.  I changed to a US 7 and was much happier with the results.  It is knit in Grayce’s Pure and Fancy laceweight wool–a gift from Margene.   My photographer was a bit uncooperative and I was trying to minimize…um, the mess (and my butt).  I love this shawl.  It was a very easy knit and the pattern pretty easy to memorize at times.  It is soft and cozy and I love to throw it over my shoulders when I am sitting on the couch or my chaise. 

We survived yet another 3 day weekend.  Owen and I spent it with his friends and their moms.  Nothing was destroyed in the process.  I left Cameron at my sister’s house so he didn’t have to put up with the boy who clobbered him last week.  Poor Cameron continues to struggle at school.  We have a meeting on Thursday.  Kevin will attend also.  Keep your fingers crossed.  Please. 

Oh…I had 875 yards so I added a couple of extra repeats and I love the overall size.
