I hope each of you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s holiday! We had a nice relaxing holiday season here at the Pink Lemon Twist igloo. We woke up to 3 degrees (F) with windchill this morning, but seeing as that’s 3 degrees above zero, I think we’re in better shape than a lot of the country. Logan did his business very quickly this morning! I hope you’re staying warm, wherever you are.
There was a lot of knitting over the last couple of weeks and I finished my Iron Maiden shawl. I didn’t need to use the extra ball of solid black yarn and I’m really pleased with how the shawl came out. You can kind of see the sparkles in the yarn at the edge above. This shawl looked really small before blocking, but once it was all blocked it came out much bigger.
Of course, I know you’re all wanting to see how Logan looks in it. Doesn’t he just look bored? Despite the fact that it bored the dog, it was a fun, quick shawl to knit. Maybe it was the color changes that kept me amused, but this seemed to just fly off the needles - even when I got to the beaded section and slowed down. This is a simple pattern and would be a good one if you’re trying to learn to read your lace.
All the yarn and pattern details are in this post

Stay warm and stay safe!
