A Few More Shawls
This is the same *easy* lace pattern as I did a couple weeks ago - YOs combined with right & left decreases to slant the diagonal lines out from the center. The wood on the deck is rough and grabs onto the yarn, so the shawls aren't as perfectly straight as they might be.
This is a close up of the pattern - this side of the center line was YO, K2TOG.
The Old Shale or Feather & Fan pattern - I like the way that the edge scallops from the lace. I think I could almost do this one in my sleep after all the baby afghans I've made with the stitch. This version, however, only has one row of knit on the wrong side rather than the two rows per repeat used on the baby afghan pattern (it's over in the side bar under Free Patterns if anyone is interested).
And the requisite close-up. For the shawl I'm working on right now, I'm doing the Feather & Fan in all stockinette just to see how it turns out.
Addendum: If it appears in the photos above that the purple shawl is smaller than the dusty blue one, that's because it is. Inflation has hit. The new Red Heart & Bernat Super Saver type skeins of acrylic have been downsized from 8 ounces to 7 ounces - a 12½% decrease while the price has gone up slightly. The purple shawl is knit from a 7 ounce skein and I used all but maybe 8 yards of the skein.
