I'm "Setting the Stage"

Hi Loves,

Its always a pleasure doing one of Petra Breakstone's KAL (knit-a-longs), this time its for her "Setting the stage" shawl.  The KAL started September 6th, and so did my shawl, its really a quick knit, I was able to complete mine in 2 days.  I would say a few hours of doing just this shawl, it would be completed in less than a day, its that simple.

I used one full skein and 3/4 of another of #ICEYARNS Natural Cotton  (the small bit is what is left from the skein on the left)

In less than 10 mins I had 44 sts on my needle.

48 sts away from my lace border


Just look at that lace work.

I was finished with my shawl, and with a whole month to basically wait I decided to start another one.  This time using Knitcrate's Knitologie Sheen in the colourway Titmouse.

This one took longer  (7 days) as I was doing 4 other projects at the same time. I was really pleased with the outcome, I also did more of the lace bit. It turns out wonderfully made, but don't take my words for it.  Take and look and let me know what your thoughts are.
