Lacy Baktus Shawl
Laura’s Blog Entry
I am now officially a shawl convert. I had done a few simple ones as gifts in the past, but this was the second one I’ve done for myself. I am having a blast trying new shapes each time. This one is a garter stitch triangle with a simple eyelet row added. It’s called Lacy Baktus by Terhi Montonen.
There is a fine line between a small shawl and a scarf. OK, maybe there is no line between them. No problem. Ima just gonna keep knitting, K?
The yarn is Jojoland Melody Superwash, in color MS29. It is a lovely sock weight yarn with a looooooong color repeat. I used the same yarn for my cabled Celtic Knee Socks. I needed just over two balls for the shawl because I am kind of picky about the color changes. I didn’t want it to be obvious where I changed balls of yarn so I used a bit of a partial ball to bridge the gap. Looks pretty seamless.
I have also finished another gift shawl in the meantime, and plan to start another to give away, just as soon as I can get to the yarn store this week. Squee! It’s shawl fever!
