Lace from the Sea



The Shetland Triangle shawl is great for conference-knitting when you can't spend every moment looking at your knitting or a pattern.

I knit it from luxurious Handmaiden Sea Silk, easy to knit with and luscious to touch. The yarn is a bit slippery so I recommend using a bamboo needle.

Using 11 pattern repeats to give a 6 ft. width to the shawl, I used all of one ball plus just enough extra to bind off the final row. (I think my husband may knit this same shawl with the second ball and knit only 10 repeats.)

    That is gorgeous! The silk really glows. I can't wait to try one.

    That looks beautiful. There's a real lustre from the silk. What a nice idea.

    Ooooooooooool so nice, I like the texture of silk. I'll try to make the next one in silk. 10 repeat is kind of what I knitted have in mind too.

    I love the look of that scarf. It look very soft in the photo. How big is it?

    About 5 and a half feet across--my height.

    I just started one in seasilk too! It's so soft! I have to say that my bamboo needles were spliting more than my KnitPicks needles were so I've gone back to the knitpicks.
