« A New Hat For DD #1 | Main | A Sad Story »







Pattern:  Kiri from All Tangled Up - Thank you Polly for such a wonderful free pattern.
Yarn:  Rowan Kidsilk Haze, color 597, 2 balls plus about 10 yards from a third
Needles:  Knitpicks Options US size 7
Finished Size:  60 x 30"
Comments:  Having knit both Kiri and Rowan's Birch, I prefer Kiri.  The edging pattern and the center increases give the shawl a more structured, finished look.  I also find starting with three stitches and increasing to the desired size is a much more convenient way to knit shawls.

Just in case you haven't already heard, Irene over at Designer Knits is having a battle with one of her co-workers.  He writes a football blog and has been giving her a hard time for being a knit blogger.  They have come up with a challenge.   In Irene's words:  "The official blog wars bet has been finalized. If football blogger remains ahead of me in terms of readers by the end of the year, I have to knit him something. If I overtake him, he has to learn to knit, and make something of his own."   So, go over and add her to your bloglines!  Let's show that football fool what a great community we have.  You won't regret it, Irene's blog is funny and loaded with wonderful photos.

Your Kiri is just wonderful - I love the color and the photos are spectacular. And I agree that Kiri is a better pattern than Birch.

Kiri was my very first lace! Yours looks fabulous! I went over & commented on Irene's site too. My football-watching husband doesn't "get" the blog scene at all, & I'm betting there are plenty of other guys like him. I'm guessing Irene's coworker may be surprised by the results of this bet.

Kiri is stunning! Gorgeous photo shoot too.

Gorgeous as always.One of these days I will have to try some lace.Just don't have the patience for it right now.Looks great!

Just stopping by from Lacevember. Kiri is gorgeous. Love the color and the pattern is so pretty. I'll definitely be adding this to my long list of "want to's."
