The birch has landed.
Pattern: Sharon Miller, Rowan #34.
Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze, color 596, Marmalade - 2.5 balls or a little less.
Needles: 4mm/6 US, Aero circs
These pictures show the birch hot off the needles - unblocked. I'm not sure if there's going to be any real blocking of this shawl. I like the size that it is pre-blocking. I may just steam/spray it to get the edges to flatten out a bit.
This is a very easy knit, and would make a great beginner lace project.
For anyone who asked, "the other bird" in Saturday's post is Moe (like one of the Three Stooges). He's a nine year old budgie who has lived with us for almost all of his life. He rarely stands still for a photograph, so there are fewer pictures of him than there are of Alice.
Next up on the needles? Remains to be seen. I've already started a sock from the sock yarn I bought on Thursday. I have plenty of UFOs to choose from, and then there's the Leaf Lace shawl, as enabled by Cari. Big needles. Big yarn. Small shawl. A seductively wearable finished object....
