|In the Pines|
After beginning this pattern with a lace weight yarn, I changed to Malabrigo fingering. The other yarn wasn't suitable for me. I enjoyed this knit, and once I caught the rhythm of this pattern, I was off.
I completed 12 pattern repeats, but didn't use the whole 440 yds. With luck and a good wind, I may have been able to squeeze in another repeat, but I decided to leave that challenge for another day.
Last night while blocking, I thought about the beads I didn't add, but since the yarn is rather compact, not to mention I knit a "wee" bit tight, I think the shawl holds its own without any.
I am looking forward to seeing each finished shawl. Enjoy stitching.... ( Marianne40 rav)
