... something french blue. i have mostly finished the susan lawrence spring things shawl. i still need to weave in the ends ......











specs:

spring things shawl by susan lawrence, knitted in louet's euroflax linen sport wt. (2 hanks, with leftovers) on size 5 turbos.

additional materials: 6/0 seedbeads.

Wow.. gorgeous! I'm so not a lace knitter.. but I'm in awe of anyone who can read those charts and deal with knitting dental floss on toothpicks.

My knitting friends and I met your friend Jim today when he stopped to chat as we knit in a bookstore in Seattle. He told us about you and your blog. Quite a nice shawl -- I'm an Evelyn Clark afficianado myself, and this one is similar to some of her designs. And your Monkey Socks are swell too -- in fact some of us were working on that very pattern today! Small world, huh?
