Finished works!!! Yay!

I'm sure some of you don't mind! :D

I've been working on another shawl. Sorry about the junk in the background (my husband has to read constantly on his web designing)...and now everyone knows that my pillows don't match my comforter. Ah..oh well. Back to the shawl.

It's supposed to be rather gauzy and open. I was going for a more old world design with this. You know, something you'd find in an old 1800's knitting book. I was thinking of the cliche woman in a white dress and a parasol on a spring day.

Close up of the middle.

(yes..the edges are supposed to be rounded, not rectangle. This adds to the soft allure of the shawl.)

On model. (front.)


The baby doll cami is done as well. I added small spaghetti straps to her and I quite like it.

The finished look is gorgeous. ( Like I said..more web design stuff. :D He's such a geek..he told me a binary joke before. *ahem* There are 10 types of people in the world..those who understand binary..and those who don't. my dumbfounded look..I was one of those that didn't understand.) Anyways..back to knitting!

The back.

I also had taken a picture of her earlier and my husband noted that it was such a good photo that I should turn it into a wallpaper. it is. :D Enjoy! Just click on the picture to see full sized image.

And change pace. That great big ball of yarn I spun..

I turned into this...

...which will hopefully look like this from victorian lace today.

The scarf is actually really easy. I'm quite impressed with it. The border took only an hour or two to actually complete and the middle is only a repeat of two rows which is a cinch to remember and helps the knitting to fly. After all the complicated and involved knitting I've done, this is such a great change of pace!

Oh..and I uploaded another scarf to the La Dentelle Belle (La Belle Dentelle) gallery.
Click picture to be taken there.

That shawl turned out lovely! I believe you pulled off the 1800s look very well. It reminds me of a shawl I saw in a Victorian Gothic painting in fact. -=applauds=-

Heh, cute binary joke.
Love the new shawl and the cami! Beautiful work!!!
And I see you are working on your Spun Stitches shawl. Feeling guilty here. . . ;)

Boy you have been busy! Your new shawl looks great. I think it would be a good pattern for mohair yarn. I looked at the La Dentelle Belle scarf pictures real closely and now see, how the others did it. Mine is a tiny little bit different, but I'm O.K. with it. Your own handspun yarn looks fantastic and you use it with a beautiful pattern.
