Curved Shawl Progress

It took a while, but I am a changed woman. I haven't suddenly become the world's speediest lace knitter, but everything seems to have fallen into place and I am at least now a relaxed lace knitter. The pre-blocked knitted fabric is uninspiring to say the least.

But with a little bit of pulling about (I managed to get a photo where you can't see my foot in it!) we can have a sneak preview of what the magic of blocking will reveal.

Brilliant :) you should be very proud of yourself. I think the very word 'lace' frightens folks at times but its all about reading the charts and taking a step at a time. Congratulations :)
The pattern of my cardi came with the wool that I bought from Shilasdair . Mail me at tussockhoppersAThotmailDOTcom if you want more info :)

Relaxed lace knitter sounds likt the best sort of lace knitter to be.

Its looking lovely! I need to learn some relaxation techniques when knitting lace, although my lace mojo has gone for the moment as I'm in a sock frenzy.
