Summer of Lace

This is the beginning of my Feather and Fan Shawl from A Gathering of Lace. This is Koigu KPPPM and the colors are exactly what you'd find in a basket of blueberries! It took over a dozen tries to get the 8 little stitches cast on with double pointed needles but once that was figured out it was an easy knit - I'm into my second ball of yarn already and I just started it yesterday. Didn't do much else on the 4th of July but work on it. I have to find someone that sells this yarn in this color - I only have 2 skeins. I have 10 skeins of Koigu in colors all related to this one that I bought to make the Alligator shawl but that was so boring I tore it out. Thought I might try the Feather and Fan shawl with the graduated colors but after working with this blue(berry) I think I want to do it all in this colorway. It's so pretty!

Pattern: Feather and Fan Shawl
Source: A Gathering of Lace
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM - Blue varigated
Needles: Size 5 Circular - started w/size 5 double points
Started: July 2, 2005 (includes the dozen times I wripped it out)

NOTE! I've tried a dozen times to get this picture in here and Blogger just won't do it, so, I'll try again tomorrow. Jeesh, can't anything be easy!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, Sheri.

It's fun to get comments, isn't it? Makes you feel like someone is actually reading what you write. Thanks for posting one on my blog.

I'm also working on a scarf in a blue colorway of Koigu. I like the yarn, but progress is so slow -- such a thin yarn compared to the worsted weight I'm using for a felted purse. It's a vertical rib lace scarf -- 15 inches done -- many feet to go.
