Finished



The process parade style.

A couple packets of Image hosted by Photobucket.com added to a Romney wool.

Than throw in a little Image hosted by Photobucket.com action (This is Sonny learning to spin.)

Which produces Image hosted by Photobucket.com that you decide to knit as a single.

You Image hosted by Photobucket.com pick the lace leaf shawl pattern and start knitting.

The knitting produces Image hosted by Photobucket.com which makes you nervous.

A little Image hosted by Photobucket.com calms your nerves and makes you want to try it all over again.


The shawl was finished yesterday and started last Thursday. It was a lot of fun to see the process from the start to finish. I made the Shawl for Beckys birthday. So as soon as it finished blocking I wrapped it up and she opened it later in the evening. I can't wait to make another one.

That. Is. Amazing. Seriously...I'm speechless! The colors are gorgeous, and the fact that you spun, dyed, and then knit it upis wonderful. You actually make me want to learn to spin!!

Gorgeous! Becky is very lucky. You make me want to try spinning. I'm working on my own Leaf Lace Shawl, but I'm not even close to finished. (I will knit faster someday!) >
