Ze Shawl, she es done!!

Isn't it just gorgeous!? I love it. It's a shame it's going out tomorrow in the mail. But, she's a pretty lady on her way to a photo shoot on Thursday. They just grow up knit fast don't they?

This is a nice close up of the lace. I'll have a few pics later with her unpinned.

Ah yes, and you can't forget my pincushion. I made this from an awesome template found on It's just the template for the outline (I used my own creativity when embroidering him).

I love the pin cushion - especially the embroidery! I should get my girls to make some pin cushions this summer. What a fun project.

Wow! It's gorgeous in white! So delicate & "innocent" ..... I'm wondering how that pattern would look incorporated into a baby shawl. (I'll be a grandma again in January.) What do you think?
The pincushion is adorable too. Your embroidery is interesting. ;)

The shawl looks wonderful. I especially like the edge work.

Monika said...

Oh, how beautiful! I almost cast on your LDB scarf last night, but it has to wait a little longer. Maybe that's good though, because I just might knit the shawl instead! Hey, great pin cushion by the way!!! ;o)

Beautiful shawl!

re: your comment, I knit my FBS on #7's. There's about 440 yards per hank of Sea Silk, and I had to end a row early (in the edging) and do a tighter than I'd like bindoff. Dimensions came out same as the pattern, tho.
