The Tines Shawl

I want to send my blessings to all the people in Japan. I'm glad to hear that all my friends and their families in Japan are safe! 

This is my latest project, just finished it over the weekend. Finished knitting on Friday, finished blocking on Saturday. Right now it's sitting in my closet becoming part of my gift stash. I might keep it, but I think I'll give it away to a friend for X'mas this year. 

This was a test knit project I was working on for Celia from Celia's Basket. Simple shawl yet you actually need to pay attention to the pattern. Making sure you do the yarn overs at the right place. I had it wrong a couple of times and had to pull it out and readjust the positions of the yarn overs to get my straight ptbl line. 

This shawl has a stockinette body and lace edge. and it uses less yarn than I expected. I used less than one skein of Misti Alpaca Lace Solid yarn. I still have about 30 yards of yarn left. It's an easy mindless project. It reminds me of the Ishbel which also has a stockinette body and lace edge. I shall make another Ishbel for myself. 

fully blocked size is 135 cm wide and 60 cm deep. which is a decent size for following the instructions for small. 

Pattern: The Tines Shawl By Celia's basket
