The Eternal Flame

Candle Flame Shawl

Pattern: Knit Picks Candle Flame Shawl

Yarn: Knit Picks Gossamer in Blue Jeans, 2 hanks

Needles: Size 4 Addi Turbos

Modification: I used two skiens instead of three, 14 pattern repeats.

Review: This was a nice lace project. It was easily memorable, not too taxing on the brain. I loved the way the colors knit up.

Ocean water

I think it looks like the surface of the ocean.

I was finally organized enough to take a pre-blocking and post-blocking picture of the lace.

I love the way the shawl turned out. It was gifted to my Sister-in-Law over the weekend. I hope she likes it as much as she says she does.

That is so gorgeous! Make one for me?! LOL OK, so I'm not a shawl-wearer, but that one is so pretty.

OOh that is so pretty. I've been eyeing that pattern for a while and didn't know if the two skeins of shimmer from knit picks I have would be enough. I think you've answered my question. How long did yours end up? I love it!! Great job, as always.
