to the point

Posted on Posted in lace/shawls, Uncategorized

i think all the waiting was worth it!! kudos to david for taking some of the best modeling shots on this blog yet—he’s got a good eye for knits (among other fine things he has . . .)

i know—that one doesn’t really give you the detail you want, but i had to put it first.

i like this one a lot too—the shawl is long and sweepy enough to wrap around a couple of times

after i stopped being worried about getting it blocked so that the trim was even with the body, i started to worry that when i unpinned it, the points would all curl and twist when it hung from the body, but no.

they are flat, but not stiff, pointy, but not too.
the vintage wool is brilliant; i had my doubts for a while that it wasn’t really nice enough, too rough, and that it wouldn’t keep its shape in the finished piece, but i was wrong, wrong, wrong. it washed up a treat and is beautifully soft and responsive. in fact, i like it very much, especially that certain navy-ness that only vintage fibers have . . .
here’s a back view, in case you wondered.

most of these shots were taken in our bedroom—the light is beautiful and david made the room spectacular (it used to be navy and black striped wallpaper on walls and ceiling—so dark, you couldn’t even see the corners . . .). yeah, he’s not just a pretty-boy photographer.

though you wouldn’t know it . . .

and now for a couple of outdoor shots (sorry, i just couldn’t narrow it down!).

i’m really happy with it—pattern forthcoming.
