Thanks for all the nice comments on my Agatha Shawl. I’m pretty pleased with it myself.
Last night I wound the first skein of my Dream in Color “Punky Fuschia” yarn and started a new shawl.
Here is my progress thus far:
I’m using a 3.75mm needle for this, and I am using an Addi Lace needle this time. It was within reach, you see.
I worked up the pattern myself, based on the basic shaping of the Agatha shawl. I really like the more-than-a-triangle shape. It sits on my shoulders very nicely without threatening to slide off.
The lace pattern itself is sort of a diamond motif, with a bunch of crap in the middle of each diamond. I’m doing double yarn-overs in this pattern, which makes bigger holes, of course. (On the wrong side you purl 1, knit 1 over the 2 yarn-overs in order to maintain the two separate stitches.)
A couple of you asked what Lucy’s toy is called and where to get it.
The toy is readily available at most drug stores. It’s a Hartz “Birds of a Teather” toy. Here’s the product detail: http://www.hartz.com/Our%20Products/browse.asp?SkuDetail=3270002223&ActionID=2
