FO - Bee Fields Shawl

There was lace binding off on Friday (in the pub no less!) and lace blocking this weekend.

She's finally finished - six months in the making. I cast on 2 Jan and cast off 13 June. I'm not a particuarly fast knitter and most of the triangle shawls I've done have been three to six months duration.

I got the kit and I love this merino yarn! The colors are fanastic - not too high contrast, and the hand of the yarn is lush. I have about 33 grams left, which should be enough for a narrow scarf sometime in the future.

My favorite part was the border

The BEES with their complex shaping and the alternating triple decreases that made the 'flower stem' part so curvy! Pure genius, I tell you!
