Remember this post about me, knitting lace-shawls? Well, I reached my goal and I still can´t believe it! Rodprjonar, Jóhanna and knittingmydayaway´s beautiful Kyrrð where really motivating and helpful, thank´s to them, I managed to knit my first lace shawl, "Hálfskák" in about 4 weeks, thank you two!!! I used brown yarn from Þingborg. The amazing thing about icelandic yarn like the one I used from Þingborg, and the similar "einband" from istex is what happens when you wash it:
1. your knit suddenly looks so nice and even!
2. the yarn get´s so soft - it´s like magic!
I just loved making this shawl and I have the feeling, I won´t be able to stop knit shawls for the next few months.
I found it very hard to get good fotos of the shawl, but here you go anyway:
My boy´s loved this shawl, because they think it looks like wings!
