ON THE NEEDLES

The Candle Flame Shawl from Knitpicks. Progressing nicely, though not without pain. It has been suggested that I might have chosen a less difficult pattern for my first lace. I think my next lace project will be a pattern with less than a 36 row repeat.

That said, I am pleased with the growth of the shawl -- currently 32", so I am almost half-way to the final 70". I think it will be beautiful when blocked.

It's beautiful now, you're doing great! I am impressed and trying to gain inspiration to try lace myself.

This very shawl is what makes me want to try lace in the first place so I'm thrilled that you've tackled it before me.
