The Light at the End of the Frostrosen Tunnel

See the Frostrosen blob this morning? Guess what? I have two more rows before I start knitting the edging across the top of it! Yipppee! I started this poor shawl in April, but it got shoved in a bag and ignored while I knit the Mystery Stole and while I started the red blurry thing. It's been very patient with me and didn't drop any of its stitches while it was waiting for me to come back to it. It's not a hard knit, or even boring, despite the repetition of the design. It has a nice rhythm to the pattern and is great for TV knitting.

For those of you who haven't seen this on my blog before (did I mention it's been shoved in a bag?), here are the details: Knit in handspun yarn from Frostrosen Kitchen Sink Batts. The pattern is The Green Moss Shawl from Heirloom Knitting and I'm working the smaller size (which is still looking like it will be quite large.) I might actually get this finished and blocked soon so I can wear it this summer!

Melanie, your knitting is such inspiration. I have read your blog for a while now but had never considered attempting to knit the gorgeous lace you do. Once I found out about MS3 I decided this was the perfect opportunity to give it a whorl. And I loving it. Thanks.

That is a very lovely color for such a delicate and airy looking shawl. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Absolutely gorgeous! I will NOT show this photo to my simple brown PI Shawl who would most assuredly get a complex or something. I have enough problems than to have knitting with an attitude! ;) I look forward to photos of the finished Frostrosen!
