Absolutely gorgeous!! What yarn did you use?
Blocking will likely help 'point' the feathers a bit. So lovely!

Gorgeous! I looked at all the topics you've started-- you're an amazing knitter! I love that flame cowl best, and not just because I love purple. I often don't comment because I'm typing one handed while I hold my baby, and get rather lazy. Or it's right before bed. Mostly I'm lazy! But please keep posting Cheesy

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.

This is so amazingly beautiful. I too am curious as to what yarn you used.

I tried to tackle a lace pattern when I first started knitting with the wrong size needles and way too little yarn; it didn't end well (or at all for that matter!).

"You listen to metal and knit?"
"Yea, so?"
"I don't know, just seems a little out of the ordinary"
"Who said I was ordinary?"

So lovely.  You're making me want to cast on some lace patterns, but I've got other projects to finish.

I've been really busy at work and just logged in, wow 625 peeps have looked at this, THANX EVERYONE. Grin

The yarn I used was Reflections Creative Collection, its a acrylic, mohair.. so its quite fluffy and knits up gorgeous, it says on the ball band that its dk/8ply, even though when knitting it, it looks and feels like 4ply/fingering weight. The mohair fills in the gaps.. if u know what I mean. I used size 5mm/US 8 circ needles. 100g with 500m, Yep I said 500m
so plenty for any size shawl.
This is another one I did back in June this yr - non-blocked. leaf and flower bu Linda Choo.
Silver Birch Leaf Shawl

You can also buy it with a metallic thread running thru it as well, for a bit of added sparkle, which is on my to do list.
Thanx again for lookin Smiley
