I have started another lace shawlette. This one is for my mom. You see, I owe her a shawl/wrap from maybe 4-5 Christmases ago. I started a wrap, as a gift for her…and got maybe a third of the way done with it, but now I have no idea where it is. So, after hunting patterns on ravelry for (probably) hours, I decided on the Vista Shawlette. I wanted something long, and not too wide. Something that could be worn as a shawl or a scarf with lace edging. And I wanted to use some of my stash of Tosh DK yarn.
I have torn this thing out and re-started it THREE times. This means I have cast on the 347 stitches THREE times. I think I finally have it, although progress is slow.
The yarn is Tosh DK in Cove. It varies between a light blue, tan, and a sort-of greenish color. My mom loves all things blue. After around 25 rows of lace, it is finished in short rows so it ends up being a crescent shape. Finished length is over 5 feet, so its definately wrap-able around the neck. Its similar in shape to the Cedar Leaf Shawlette I just finished, and I really liked how that turned out. I love a good shawlette.
