I'm so happy to have this finally done! I used the Glam Shells pattern from Ravelry as an excuse to finally use my Zauberball yarn. The pattern was well written and I even got the hang of the lace edging. My only problem is that I had a hard time blocking it, especially around the edges, so that they didn't curl. Any tips?



I managed to sucker a friend into modeling for my at Easter. I also suckered her pillow into the same thing.



I have more nitty-gritty details on my blog, but in summary - the pattern and yarn were both great to work with. Easy project for an intermediate knitter.

Inspiration without application is moot.

I love Zauberball yarns.

Your shawl is great, but the story behind suckering both your friend and her pillow needs to be told.  Smiley

My powers of persuasion are dangerous. I do not believe the world is ready.
