FO: My Sister’s Birthday Shawl

My Sister's birthday shawl

Aurantium Blossom by Alice Yu
My Ravelry Post: here
Yarn: Oxford Kitchen Yarns Sock Yarn in Antique Ribbon (1 skein) and a small amount of Raspberry for the border (because I decided half way through to knit the larger shawl.)
Needles: 4.5mm addi lace. <3
Notes: This shawl really grows. I’ve been knitting lace for about 6 years now, and usually I’m pretty calm about knowing they’ll turn out ok, but the complexity of the stitches meant that the shawl felt really bunched right up until it hit the water. Then it really did blossom, and turn into something larger, and more beautiful.

I love that lace is still surprising. I guess it always will be. 🙂

I finally got to give it to my sister on sunday, when they came over. A belated, but hopefully useful birthday present.
