A new shawl project…

Ok so I’ve never knit with lace weight yarn before, and let me tell ya, it takes FOREVER. However, I am very much enjoying it because this yarn is so beautiful! It’s Manos del Uruguay Marina in the colorway Frozen. This skein has a whopping 874 yds! I’m working on a new design here – a shawl with a pretty dropped stitch look (except you actually double wrap the knit stitches and drop the extra on the next row). I’m hoping to continue with this stitch pattern for a while, but eventually switch it up and make a border on the other end that is knitted vertically instead of horizontally! It should be a fun design adventure!
