Blue Eggs Complete

It took quite a bit longer than expected but in the end, as with most things that take effort, I think it came out gorgeous and simply amazing. Now that it's off the needles and blocked I find myself in love with it again ... though not enough to instantly cast on another one. That might have to wait just a little bit so that I can work on a couple other things first.



I am in love with the points ... and how it's so soft and wrappable and yet, the points, they stay. They don't fade back into the shawl to become lost in the pattern.



Pattern: Omelet by Joyce Fassbender
Yarn: Knit Picks Palette in Celesial
Modifications: Did 6.5 repeats of chart B instead of 4.5
Project Page: Ravelry

  2. It's stunning! I'm in love with it too! Although not enough for me to rush out and cast one on:) I'm much too lazy for that!

    1. Thank you! This was one of the shawls I'd wanted to make for myself but I think it'll have to wait a bit before I do that. It really is worth it though.

    1. Thank you! It's another reminder that blocking is magic since I was not nearly as impressed with it before blocking.
