Stitch by stitch

I started this shawl in early July and blogged about it here and again in September.   Right now, it is roughly 26 inches long.   This will be a definite wrap yourself in it shawl.

I am in love with this yarn - Sirdary Snuggly baby bamboo and the lovely silver gray color.

The pattern is from the Purl Bee  There are 12 rows in each pattern repeat - half of those are lace rows, half are purl rows.  I've just finished my millionth of a gazillion repeats of the pattern and - maybe - now have the hang of it.

Based on the volume of yarn consumed and left to go, I am slightly - just slightly - less than half way.  I tend to knit sitting in front of the tv which isn't something I do very often so the going has been slow.    It is enjoyable.

My goal remains to finish it by - or at least in - the spring!

Happy Stitching!


  1. So lovely... who cares how long it takes to finish? You'll have a beautiful shawl to wrap around your shoulders and be snuggly warm in! Great job...

  2. It's beautiful. I crochet and I know how long something like this takes but it is so worth it.

  3. A beautiful lace wrap. The drape looks lovely and soft. I am sure you will have it done soon.
