Garter Love

I decided to be brave and try a 'real' lace triangular shawl.

Garter Love looked relatively easy, with a 12 stitch repeat for the diamond lace pattern.

Worked in Posh Martha sock weight (80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon), I didn't have quite enough to complete the final 6 rows of the border lace. I may have started something else with the skein (it was wound into a ball weighing 90g instead of the usual 100g) and not been able to recover all the yarn when the project was 'frogged'. I obviously hadn't got too far with the frogged project because the yarn was not 'kinked' at all.

The shawl is on blocking wires at the moment.
