Lace Shawl #2

Well, here is my second attempt to knit the Print O The Wave Stole by Eunny Jang. The top picture is the finished shawl as it came off the needles. Not much to look at. Once the shawl was blocked it was amazing how much bigger it got, this is a twin size sheet folded in half the long way. As I began pinning, it became quite evident I picked up a lot more stitches on one side of the shawl than the other to knit on the border. Thats what I get for not counting stitches and just winging it. The nice thing is that it is not noticible at all when the shawl is wrapped around a body. It is soft, drapey and warm made in Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud. I am happy to say that the shawl does look much more like it is supposed to this time.
