Off the Needles!

The Shetland Triangle is done. I still need to block it and watch it grow (hopefully). It is pretty, even though it is petite and a little lumpy.

Specs: Shetland Triangle from Wrap Style, Dark Plum Zephyr Merino Laceweight purchased at Stitches West 2007. Size 6 Knitpicks Options needles. 13 pattern repeats instead of 8, otherwise knitted as per pattern. Love the pattern, like the Monkey socks, it made complete sense when I knitted it. Gotta love a logical pattern that you can see when you are right and when you are not. Had one little tink episode but other than that, it was a great knit, although it seemed to take forever to bind off the over 360 stitches at the end.

I am now a lace knitter. I had toyed with it before, but I have now knit a lace shawl with laceweight yarn. Stand back folks!

Now I get to start swatching and catching up on the Mystery Stole. And finishing up the sock.

On another note, I won a little blog contest over on the cutest blog Paper and String. She sent me (from England!) a very sweet little piece of paper art that is destined to be handed over to Nolamom the scrapbook goddess to end up in Grace's album. Thank you Paper and String! Go check out her blog, gotta love the cupcake felt goodies. She just posted her ideas for Christmas. Very cute!

Oh, The shawl looks very pretty--I hope it's blocked & dried so it can come to knitters tomorrow--I'd love to see it in person
