Flower Basket Shawl: Upper Flower Basket done

Start: 21st November 2007

Finish: WIP

Needles: 3.5 mm / 60 cm INOX circs (will change to 80 cm Addi Lace as soon as I can get the needles)

Yarn: My own hand-spun, 100% 18 micron merino, "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil"

Pattern: (Ravelry links), Flower Basket Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark from Interweave Knits, Fall 2004

Modification: Since I have only 500 m of this single, I can't double the yarn up and use the bigger needle. So I'm just down-sizing the whole thing.


Knitting with my own hand-spun really gives me the satisfaction and the appreciation of having gone through the process of making the thing myself! I'll see how the end product turns out....but for the moment, I can see lots more projects done with my own hand-spun in the future. Especially lacey stuff with just lace-weight singles!!!!!
