I found the last nine rowsâ€”which are true lace, with increases and decreases on both right and wrong sideâ€”a bit challenging, but Chris says they went smoothly for her. Just don’t give in to any temptation to sip a bit of wine as you’re finishing up: early celebration could be disastrous!
Here’s Chris’s finished version of the shawl in a holiday setting.
And here’s one more look at my version of the shawl.
Don’t forget to email me a picture of your finished shawl before noon on November 24 (shATwhatifknitsDOTcom). If you do, you’ll not only be entered into a prize draw for some gorgeous hand-dyed lace-weight. You’ll also be eligible to compete for the Test-Knitter’s Choice Award that Chris will bestow.
