Did you ever have those moments when you look back and say to yourself, now if only I had done this in a different order…..
Such as… if only I had started with the Spring Thaw Shawl instead of the Gamayun Bird, I’d at least have finished one of them on vacation. And I totally could have managed it on the plane.
So without further delays… allow me to present a completed Spring Thaw Shawl!
This pattern is actually pretty easy to follow along, and available in both written and charted if you want to get your toe in the waters of lace so to speak. I went with 12 leaf repeats down the center spine, primarily because of how my yarn colorway was working I decided I wanted to end as I began.. in the dark smoke.
The yarn I used was Patton’s Lace in Woodrose, and it took me just under a skein from start to finish….. which means I have another skein of it. To me, the browns and greys make it more interesting than just a simple pale pink.
I was rather surprised at how quickly this came together… from cast on to fully blocked and photographed in just 6 days!
