This shawl has been long in the making, not only because of the pattern, but because the yarn was so thin. But now it's finished, and just in time for our colleague's retirement party tomorrow.
Holden shawlette, but I made quite a few more repeats because the yarn I used (Malabrigo Lace) was so much thinner than in the pattern. I used 65 grams of the yarn, so just over one skein. The shawl is still fairly big, it's really soft and light. I used 3½ mm needles. I might do this again with thicker yarn, I love the lace and the picot edge.

I've finished my 11 scarves/shawls, but have several other projects in mind to finish before the end of the year, so I hope to keep posting here! Up next, maybe a half granny square shawl. In the meantime, I came across this cool project! You can find more details here. I think I'm going to join!

I can hardly believe it, but I finished scarf number 11 yesterday!
The yarn for this Pimpelliese is Novita Freesia, a cotton yarn that was for sale a while ago. Haven´t seen it since. I used 3,5mm needles. I liked knitting this one, the pattern is easy and pretty. It already found its user, my daughter.

Finished this scarf on my trip to eastern Finland (Punkaharju) to visit my uncle and his wife in their lovely summer cottage. It is Novita Puro, colour Aallokko and I used 6mm needles to knit it and crocheted around with a 5mm hook. The pattern is in the Novita Magazine Kevät 2011.
