Flying Cloud

This project was made with my mum-in-law in mind and I’m really pleased with the way it turned out. It’s the Acadian Shawl from Melissa McCurley.   Made from recyled yarn from the fabulous Grace at RPM Fiberworks, it took a little over 5 days from start to finish.  It was my first project knitted using charted instructions so a little coaching was required and Heather of Knit Lace came to my rescue there.

After the cast on and increase sections were under my belt this shawl happened quickly, with the lace chart border easy to remember and speedy to repeat.

Once on the straight section I decided to weight the yarn and just keep repeating until I’d used 100g and then start the decreases.  It turned out that I did 11 repeats rather than the 9 suggested by the pattern.

All in all this was an easy knit and really built my confidence in terms of knitting lace stitches.  I enjoyed it a lot and will probably knit it again when the right yarn comes along.
