Chart 2 done!

After getting nearly 3/4 through knitting chart 2 I looked at it, and it just wasn't right. I was really glad I'd put in a life line. Gads. Out it came. I re-knit chart 2, more carefully, and finished that up over the weekend. I started chart 3 (after moving my life line up) and my second ball of yarn at about the same time. So far so good.

Mountain Peaks shawl finished

I haven't been posting much as I have been so busy trying to finish this shawl in time for the Autumn.
I am so pleased with the result!

Knitted in Knit Picks Shimmer Lace weight on 3.75mm bamboo needles.

The only alteration that I made to the pattern ( it wasn't planned) was to knit an extra repeat of chart 1 - guess who can't count!

The colours in the yarn compliment the pattern beautifully and even the edging chart wasn't too much of a trial:-)

Many thanks to Mim for such a wonderful pattern.

I'm off now to spin enough laceweight to knit the Mountain Stream scarf :-)

On to chart 2

I finally finished up the three repeats of chart 1, and have moved on to chart 2. Woohoo! For a complete run down and another photo, see my blog.
