Hello, and happy Easter all! I hope everyone got something awesome from the 'Easter Bunny', be it yarn, or chocolate (I got both, so I'm quite content!)
Anyway, I finally bothered to cast on for my Lace Band Bracelet. It`s an entry into yet another of The Yarn Attic`s KALs. But with a deadline of April 30th, I may have left this a little tighter then I would like.
That being said, I`m amazed at how far a skein of Malabrigo Sock goes! I got my Evening Star Cowl, my Stella By Starlight Headband, and now the Lace Band Bracelet, out of it, with still more yarn left in the ball. It`s actually really impressive.
What's even more impressive is how my Ethereal Shawl turned out. With a cast off of 500 + stitches, it was rather daunting.
This is it before blocking:
And this is it after blocking (and later in the day).
It didn't even really fit spread out on the couch after I'd blocked it. I'm glad it's a symsetrical pattern, since I had to fold it in half to get it to fit on my blocking mats! Note to self, I need more of the mats!
But I got it done with over two weeks to spare before the deadline. I'm quite proud of myself for that!
