Shawl Challenge – Percy Shawl WIP

Percy Shawl WIP

Two weeks ago a shawl challenge with my friend Laura got me some gorgeous yarn to play with the very next day! She picked the Percy Shawl pattern from her Pinterest board. I was a little slow getting started because honestly I forgot how to knit with lace yarn.  I may not have been quite ready for this yet.  Here’s what I’ve remembered so far:

  1. Lace looks like a tangled mess until you block it.
  2. Lace is so much easier with really sharp needle points.  I might be shopping for that soon.
  3. Safety lines are your friends.  I need to look that up again too.

Wish me luck everyone.  We all know that now that I’ve started I’m way too stubborn to stop!
