Premature Posting

I didn't realize that I would finish the lace project today. She's blocking right now.

The Details:

Pattern: Lace Poncho from IK Fall 2005 -- free pattern!

Yarn: Cascade 220 in a camel color. It's really more goldy-tan than the picture lets on. 2 skeins.

Needles: Knitpicks Options US 8

Size while blocking: 14-18" x 53-55"

Started: December 31, 2007

Completed: January 13, 2008

Modifications: I only did 8 pattern repeats instead of the required 9. I could have probably squeezed another 1/2 pattern repeat out of the yarn. Also, I am not planning on sewing it into a poncho shape.

Whee!

It looks great, and wow, that was fast! So no poncho? Will it end up as a stole?

OMG that is beautiful! Both color and pattern are great! I do so want to knit lace but I always mess it up, keep forgetting some yo or something else... You can be proud of yourself!

That is beautiful. I am still working on that &%#@*% Swallowtail Shawl. I wish I could knit lace like you do.
