Kiri Elation

December and January were good months for finishing projects. One project of which I'm particularly proud is Polly's Kiri Shawl. It was my second lace project, and I started it right before summer vacation in August. It had many periods of rest, and I learned to frog on this project. (It's really scary.)

The first lacy thing I tried was the Knitty Branching Out scarf. I'm scared of using lacy weight yarn, though. I couldn't bring myself to use the Kidsilk Haze for something as large as Kiri, and the Cascade 220 came through for me. I used just over two skeins, and discovered that my original dye lots didn't match when I went to Downtown Yarns to get the third. Whoops.

In any case, I like it and it's wonderful to wear when sitting in the drafty computer room. More lace in the future, I think... and next time in KSH.
