I'm crazy for lace!

I can't seem to get enough lace right now! After finishing my Charlotte's Web I was itching for more lacey goodness. I went back to a shawl I started in March as a test knit for Jolene and it just flew off my needles.

Cityscape Shawl

Stats:
Pattern
: Cityscape shawl by Jolene Mosley - pattern available at the Sweet Sheep
Yarn: about 400 yards of Yarn Pig's merino tencel sock yarn in the Sangria colorway
Needles: Size 6 Addi Lace needles
Mods: I didn't read the instructions all the way through (doh!) and didn't notice I was supposed to do some feather and fan edging. I realized it when I was nearly done and almost out of yarn! I managed one row and a bind off and was left with this much!

That's all folks!

Tall about cutting it close! I think I had about 1 yard left over!



Now for more pictures!

This shawl is a true one skein wonder. I knit it with one skein of sock yarn.
