This shawl was knit from the pattern “Let It Snow” by Po Lena. I knit it using The Gossamer Web’s Sheherazade, in the color “wisteria.” The finished piece is light and airy and has a nice halo. The yarn was OK to work with; the finished product is lovely, but I don’t know that I’ll buy the yarn again. At that price point I really should be much more in love with the yarn.

I made a few modifications to the pattern, which came with only scanty instructions. The pattern charts were good, but the instructions were incomplete and didn’t seem to go with the charts. For example, the instructions stated that the charts only showed the odd-numbered knit rows, but the charts themselves showed every row. The edging was also missing instructions on rounding the bottom tip and had a misprint, in the form of a decrease that needed to be added to the first row. I liked the project and found it to be a relaxing knit, but a beginner who needs every step spelled out should find another pattern.

This was my 37th lace piece.

Matilda decided that it was time to stop knitting and pet her.
