Pangea Shawl

Quick post today.....it's done!  I finished the shawl on Saturday, blocked it on Tuesday, and here it is:

In case you missed the details on this one, here you go:

  • Pattern: Pangea Shawl by What If Knits
  • Elann Peruvian Baby Silk in colorway-1805 Eggplant, I used 7.25 skeins
  • Needles: addi turbo lace, size 6
  • Finished size: 64" wide x 36" deep

The yarn is soft and blocked nicely.  The pattern is well written and easy to follow...what more could I ask for? This shawl is a Christmas gift for an unknown recipient!

If you are wondering about the trip to Disneyland, yes, we had a great time.  If you are going anytime in the near future, make sure you go by the Haunted Mansion.  It has been completely done over in Nightmare Before Christmas.  I'm not a huge fan of that movie, but the Haunted Mansion was amazing.

Now I am off to knit more and look for more lace knitting books.  I have this overwhelming need for vintage lace patterns, so I have been shopping for Niebling, Duchrow, and old Weldon's Practicals.  Now I know what I am asking for Christmas.
