Lily of the Valley. sneak peek for C!

27. August 2012 22:35 by Jobo | 0 Comments

I've been puttering away on the knitting. starting some new things, and completing a few, but I've been a little lazy about photographing everything!  Well a friend finally called me out on it and asked if I was ever going to give her a peek of that shawl I was working on. since she had heard about it and wondered what it was like.

 

This one is full of Nupps!  It's a Nupp fest really - as are all of the traditional Estonian Lily of the Valley patterns.  It's basically a chain of YOs to make the stem of the flower, and the nupps are the flowers.

So. I did a pseudo block so I can show the progress so far Smile

 

The baby alpaca yarn is soft and light, and though the color is difficult to photograph, I'm quite pleased with the results so far.

You can't really tell from these pics, but I'm about halfway there.  I plan on using up the two skeins of this that were in my stash, and I've knit up the majority of the first skein.  I'm relying on my kitchen scale and a little luck to eyeball how far I can go with the center panel and still have enough left to do a nice sized border.  I still have to decide on what kind of border too Smile

 

So C:  What do you think?  lol
