Shetland Triangle I and II

Mari`s post reminded me to finally upload pictures of the two Shetland Triangles I made a while ago. The blue one is knit with Knitpicks Shadow and needles size 4. I loved the pattern so much that I made another one for my grandmother, this time using Knitpics Alpaca Cloud in the Iris colorway and needles size 2. Both times, I made more pattern repeats and used about two skeins.

    Lovely shawls, both of them. Which of the yarns did you prefer to work with, the Shadow or the Alpaca Cloud?

    How beautiful!!!!!!!!!!It looks like a dream Anna. I am so envious. I want to make one, with the aid of the tutorial, I hope mine will be half as nice as your.

    These are gorgeous, and how nice to make one for your grandmother. I'm sure she treasures it.

    Really gorgeous! Would love to have the confidence to knit something like that.

    Thank You for all your lovely comments. I liked to work with the Shadow better. It knits faster, I could use stronger needles (size 4) and make fewer pattern repeats to get about the same size. The Alpaca Cloud is softer and feels heavenly. But with needles size 2 it was a slow project. It would be easier if I had bamboo circular needles but my LYS does not carry them in such a small size. And my Grandma`s birthday was coming rapidly so I did not want to wait. The pattern itself is not difficult. It was my first big lace project so be confident. I am sure your shawl will be gorgeous.
