Estonian Garden Shawl

Pattern: Estonian Garden
by Evelyn A. Clark (of course!) - Fiber Trends #S-2009
Yarn: Misti Alpaca Lace - Ivory (color 100) ; 2 balls
100% baby alpaca; 440 yds/50 gr
Needles: KnitPicks Options circular size 4
Size: 20" x 60"
I *love* absolutely everything about this shawl and the entire knitting experience was sheer pleasure. I can't say the same for blocking. I found the blocking wires unwieldy; like trying to sew with a very blunt, extremely looooong needle (while bent over on the floor on your knees). Perhaps I'll get better with them in time. 'Cause I gotta tell you; this is not my last shawl!

That is a gorgeous shawl! Wow, and did I read that you haven't been knitting all that long? Well, you go girl!

Love the little penguin, and what a great idea. I love all the beautiful beads they have out but I'm not a "beader" and have no idea how to make jewelry, but that book thong is perfect.

You are very talented! Oh, and thanks for adding another new yarn shop to my GA Yarn Shop list. Haven't been to that one yet either.
