Flower Basket Shawl

Last night I drug out my poor little Flower Basket Shawl and got a bit more done on it. 7 rows to be exact. I now have a stitch count of 275 if I'm doing the math right, so it's bigger than the original design from IK. Looking at the ball of yarn (I started with only 2 ounces of merino/silk top), I'm pretty sure that I have enough for at least one more repeat of the basket pattern + enough for the edging pattern. I might have enough for two more basket repeats + the edging, but I don't know yet. I'd love to get this finished, there are so many shawls I'm really dying to get started on, but I'm trying to finish the Flower Basket first. I think if I seriously buckle down and just knit this, I can finish it up pretty quickly. If only there was more time in the day, and I wasn't distracted by every project that walks by!

I've been getting distracted a lot lately to ;). I love the colors in your shawl. It's going to be beautiful.

Ditto your post. I am so interested in getting mine done because there are so many other things I would like to do. Can't wait to see the finished product. Speedy knitting!

Wow, it's so pretty! I love those colors...
I just finished a leaf-lace shawl about a month ago - those last looong rows seemed to take forever... but totally worth it in the end! Keep it up!

Now THAT is a beauty! What is it about spring weather that equals distraction?

Loving the FBS, your yarn is great for it. I'm wanting to start a new lace stole myself, thinking about the Scotch Thistle stole with some of my handspun. (it's so cool to say "some of my handspun" LOL)

I love the colour of the FBS very much, it is so soft that to welcome the Spring season.
