Cherry Leaf Shawl

Finito! Evilla 6/1 laceweight yarn, about 1/2-1/3 of the 205 g that Theresa sent me.


I LOVE this. In fact, I've been wearing it around my office just for fun.


It was 32 degrees this morning, but the sun peeked out, and Wilco wanted to help me take a few quick pictures to share.


By the time I was done with this shawl, I had the leaf pattern memorized, which is rare for me!


It was my first time knitting an edging onto a shawl too, and I think it turned out all right.


Fall, perfect time for shawls.

Very pretty! I dream of the day I can memorize a lace chart like that... Now I'll go rummage through my stash for my Evilla. I always forget I have some.

It turned out way more than "all right"! I love the colour gradations and good on you for memorizing the pattern!

It's turned out beautifully! I love the colours and how they fade into one another. I think that's my favourite pattern in VLT.
