Kiri eleison

Kiri is done! Second Kiri Shawl I've knit, this time in Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester in their Ivory colorway...it's a christening shawl for my best friend's impending clone...


Couldn't initially figure out why this one seemed to be taking so much longer, but then I realized I'd done 3 additional repeats...so it's nice and big...not huge, but about 6' wingspan...first time I got to use my lace blocking wires too...still a bit of a pain to get the knitting on the wires but then pinning it to the board goes much faster and a lot straighter...
Just cast on the Cactus Flower Sweater from Knitty.com...

And a quick finished object...lengthwise scarf out of a ball of Be Sweet's Magic Ball in the Nemo's World colorway...nice way to spend an hour...

That purple yarn is delicious! And your shawl is stunning!

Thanks for the hint about Jocelyn's. You are right--I went and looked at the samples. I am surprised I didn't notice it before, but then, I am not crazy about their colorways, so I didn't do a close inspection.

The Kiri is beautiful. A Kiri was my first lace project--just about killed me but I got it done. I like the look of yours--looks to be a bit heavier yarn than I used.
