FO: Foliage Shawl

My current WIPs were all sidelined last week so I could knit a gift for a very special friend of the family.

Foliage Shawl

Foliage Shawl by MimKnits
Malabrigo Sock in Alcaucil on size 6 needles
I added one repeat to the body before beginning the knit-on border. This knit up very quickly, but I think the border took as long as the body. I'd never done this type of border before but found it rather enjoyable.

I was also please that the lacy pattern produced such a large shawl out of only 1 hank of yarn.

Now returning to my regularly scheduled knitting... and pouring over new patterns.

Gorgeous! I keep running into more stuff I want to knit. Why does my house need to be dug out???

I look at that beautiful shawl and wonder how you stay focused on a pattern with a house full of boys interrupting you????

And aren't we related because we share the same name?

*wink*

Blessings,
