Miss Lambert’s Shetland shawl

Captain's Log, Stardate 12.23.2008

I made this shawl for Captain Caffeine’s work gift exchange. He works with mostly women, so I figured he’d get major kudos for this gift.

I used this really nice blue heather wool laceweight yarn that has purple highlights. The pattern is from Victorian Lace Today.

(If you’re on Ravelry, more info on the yarn, needles, etc. is here.)

  6. This is very pretty. You are far more advanced than I am. I just learned last year so I have a ways to go. Do you mind if I friend you over at Ravelry

  7. That is stunning, Camy. Way beyond what most people expect in a work exchange.

    Simply stunning! Now that you are more proficient at knitting, how long would you say a project like this takes?

    And here's a cute thing--my 3rd son (20) just got a scarf knitted by a girl who likes him. She's just learning. ;)

  8. Melody, definitely friend me at Ravelry!

    Crystal, this didn't take as long as it looks like it ought to have taken because the middle pattern was really easy and repetitive, and the borders were pretty easy too. I don't know how many hours, though. How cute about your son!!!!
