FO: Flower Market


Oh man, I am so crazy about this shawl. It is absolutely gorgeous. And the yarn-oh my god, the yarn! It's so soft, and luminous, and it just looks so great in this pattern. Swoon. Super, super thanks again to Andi for gifting me the pattern :) Aren't knitting/blog friends the absolute best?


This ended up taking just over 2 months from start to finish, mostly because I had other stuff that I needed to work on at the same time. But it is so worth whatever time I put into it. I love lace in thicker yarns, and this came out exactly how I wanted. The size is amazing- and the color is so perfect. It's such a great weight, too, and I know I'll get a lot of use out of it come fall. It's just a touch heavier than a fingering-weight shawl, but it doesn't have the bulk of a worsted or bulky-weight wrap.


Absolutely no mods on this one-I used thicker yarn than the pattern called for, but still knit it up on a US6 needle. I didn't add or change anything, and I'm so pleased with it. I just love everything about this project so much-the pattern is perfect, the yarn is absolutely gorgeous, and the whole thing was a complete delight to work on, from start to finish.
