Sand Dollar Shawl

Yesterday while it was doing this outside,

I was inside doing this

and it did actually dry completely overnight.
Today it is a bright, sunny day and I have this

Pattern: Sand Dollar Shawl
from Knitting Lace Triangles by Evelyn A. Clark
(this would be a desert island book)

Yarn: Jojoland Ballad
superwash wool
220 yards / 50 gr - 2 balls
color 307 - Lake Blue

Needles: Size 4 KnitPicks Options circular

In "Knitting Lace Triangles" EAC provides you with four basic lace stitches (in words and charts) and the instructions for combining them to create your own shawls - along with much other helpful information. Additionally she has provided sample shawls in one, two, three, or four lace combinations and the Sand Dollar is a two-lace combo which I find very pleasing. Besides combining them, you can decide for yourself how many repeats to do of each stitch. The Sand Dollar alternates a 10 row medallion repeat with a 20-row ripple repeat. Fun times!

You are getting really fast with all that lace. That color is really pretty! Love the pattern too.
Love those sneakers/tennis shoes/basketball shoes you have on.
No sun down at this end of the state. We've had enough rain to float a boat in the yard.
