At last! A finished object! My LaReine is finally finished and ready for blocking. I’m super excited! So much so that I contemplated playing hooky from work so I could stay home and block. (Alas, I was good and responsible and came into work.) This is actually my favorite part of knitting lace–the transformation of wrinkly, rumply knitting into wonderfully loose drapey lace. This pattern was an absolute joy to knit and I’d highly recommend it. (The pattern is by my talented friend Angela and she is putting out tons of other great designs as well right now. Be sure to check them all out! I have my eyes on the Koyou Shawl next.) The yarn (Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine) is impossible to photograph. The color is a rich burgundy color, a little red, a little purple, a little brown. I think this will be a Christmas gift for my mom. I hope she likes it. I don’t normally repeat patterns but I’ve already purchased some yarn to make for one for myself.
