I just picked up a copy of the new issue of The Knitter and my 'Lightning Shawl' is in this issue. Juliet (the Knitter editor) already told me the pics were beautiful and wow, I love the pics. they really show off the shawl beautifully. My shawl is on the front page - a tiny little pic in the bottom left-hand corner.
This shawl is a half hexagon shawl worked form the top down and takes just 1 skein (100gr/800m) of Silken Lace. I had planned to dye some Silken Lace last week but due to deadline knitting I never got around to it. It's on the to-do list tomorrow and should be in the shop on Thursday. You can also use Supreme Lace and Silky BFL Lace and there is plenty of those in the shop now. Angel Lace and Bambino Lace are also suitable but they're sold out.
Here's a close up of the beads:
I've finished two deadline projects and i'm looking forward to a night of relaxing non-work knitting. I'll show you what I decide to work on later in the week. It may be a design that's been on the needles since Spain last summer.
