Soon to be Free Range...

...the Flower Basket Shawl! That's right, I'm binding off now. Since you saw it last, I ended up doing two more repeats of the Basket Chart before I started the Edging Chart and I think I figured it just about perfectly. I'll have some yarn left over, even after the yarn eating lace bind off, but I don't think I could have gotten another Basket Chart repeat out of it. My big goal for the day is to get the shawl off the needles and maybe I can get it blocked today.

It feels like I have been knitting on this forever and last night I realized that I had. I started this back in October or November, but then set it aside to knit Mindy's Stole/Hanami. This poor little shawl has just been sitting patiently on the needles waiting for me to get back to it. When I finally did, it didn't cause any trouble, drop stitches, make mistakes, or any of the other huge list of things that neglected knitwear can do. Once I get this blocking, I've already got my next lace project picked out! You'll just have to wait and see what it is!

Beautiful shawl!!! Daughter Joy is starting the sweater for my niece!!!! Not as fine a yarn, but niece is not a lacey type person and wants a country thick one.

Melanie, the shawl is lovely. I can't wait to see how it blocks out. The colors are so pretty and do remind me of delicate flowers gathered into a basket.

That is so pretty! I like the striped effect on it. I also love your pink socks a few posts back.
