Imaganitive and original post title, I think you'll agree!

Image-heavy post ahead, but I think it's worth it.

Pattern: Fiddlesticks Lotus Blossom Shawl
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Iris Garden. I used 2 skeins plus 5/7th of one (yes, I am a scientist and I did weigh it!).
Needle: 4.5 mm bamboo circular
Time taken to knit: 4 months on and off
Finished size: 32"/80cm by 66"/170cm (and probably could have got more if I hadn't run out of room on my "blocking area" a.k.a. my bed!)

More details on it's webpage here.

I. Love. This. Shawl.

  • It's yummy, Amy! I love the colors. The beautiful lines of that lace pattern are just stunning, and the yarn you chose really complements the lace.

  • Wow, Amy! I'm a bit behind on my blog readings and just came over and checked out your shawl. It's so beautiful. It always amazes me how lace just looks like a ball of nothing until you block it out. I always liked the colors you chose, but it goes so well with the lace and definitely worth the wait. Just beautiful

  • You did a beautiful job on this! And I'm so happy to see it because I have four balls of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Forest in my stash, which I hadn't thought of using for this pattern...but I will now.

    I have some Zephyr Wool/Silk in this bright color and you have inspired me to get it on the sticks QUICK!
