I was so excited after finishing my Branching Out lace scarf that I cast on for Evelyn Clark's Flower Basket Shawl last night. Not much to look at yet, but isn't the yarn color scrumptious? It is Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in TidePool. A lovely blue green blend. I am knitting this lace weight yarn double for a slightly more substantial shawl.
It took me a little bit to get used to these Size 6 Addi Turbo Lace needles. I knit my last lace project on bamboo, and these are a little bit slicker. The taper on the needles is nice though, and once I got used to them, I figured out how to avoid stitches accidentally slipping off the needles.
