Lilac Leaf again

Pattern: Lilac Leaf Shawl
by Nancy Bush in "Knitted Lace of Estonia"
18" x 60"

Yarn: Jade Sapphire Lacey Lamb
100% Extrafine Lambswool - Color 225 / Blood Red
825 yds/60 gr - leftovers

Needles: Size 4 circulars

Color is a bit dulled in this picture. I think it was overcast when I took it. We've been having some cooler spring days around here. That is really welcome. So often we head directly into summer with weather just immediately hitting the 80s and only going up from there.

I knit this same pattern once before and it was such an easy, enjoyable knit that I decided to use the leftovers from the two balls of yarn to make it again. I didn't quite get all the repeats called for by the pattern, but I used as much of the yarn as I could.

I've said before, I love, love, love this Lacey Lamb yarn. It is such a pleasure to knit. So wonderful in fact that I think I should buy another ball or two....but maybe in a different color.
