Cast On! Faux Spanish Lace Shawl

Heading down to Nashville to meet Paul's Mom in a few weeks and wanted to knit her something special. MMario's Faux Spanish Lace Shawl (that many of you have done so beautifully) fits the bill!

Long On Knitting - Short On Altitude!

The blocking is complete, the gift was wrapped with care... and Sara and I worked a shift together last night. She loves her very large, very beautiful scarf! Wow, it looks so BIG on her!! Blocking it made all the difference.

She insisted that she pose for the photo with the full length showing (although I think she phrased it, "so people can see how short I am!"

This scarf was created for one of my preceptors at work. Just got it done and Paul (PaxKnitter) helped me block it.
