Myrtle Leaf Shawl.

I guess it has been a while. I did attempt a post but the computer froze up. I have started the Myrtle Leaf Shawl from Victorian Lace today. I am using Misti Alpaca Lace from the stash. I have been desperately wanting a black shawl so this is try #2. The Baltic Sea Stole wasn’t looking all that nice in black. I do think the Myrtle Leaf Shawl looks lovely in black. However, I am not sure I care for knitted lace as well as lace knitting. Those unknit yarnovers look so unfinished. As I progress in the shawl…the look is growing on me. I am now on the 5th repeat of 40. I have considered scrapping it and going for the Large Rectangle with Center Diamond pattern but it looks dull.

    I can never tell how much I like a lace piece until it’s finished. It really is just looped yarn until it’s blocked.

    I think you should stick with it. Hard to tell prior to the blocking but I’ll bet it is going to be gorgeous.

    Ooh – I think it’s a winner already. Was just looking at the book today. So glad to see you making something from it. Hope you’re having a great summer with lots of family, fun and relaxation.

    I’m still trying to figure this out:
