FO Friday – Glam Shells - Glam Shells shawl closeup

I finished my first lacy shawl!  I’ve made a couple of shawls before but they’ve been thicker yarn – more for warmth than style.  I saw this pattern, went to The Yarn Attic (the KAL sponsor) and spotted a lovely yarn called Ella Rae Lace yarn … and an even lovelier colorway called Bubble Gum.  At first, I refused to purchase it because I have plenty of yarn (!!!).   Within a couple of weeks, I found out I won a $10 gift certificate to the store for participating in a different KAL.  Yippee!  I took that as a sign that I needed to buy that yarn 🙂 - Glam Shells shawl closeup - Glam Shells shawl in progress

I have to say I’m in awe of people that make these all the time … and of those that design them. After all, they don’t look like much when you’re working on them. - Glam Shells blocking

It’s not until you block (stretch and pin) the shawls that their beauty comes through. - Glam Shells shawl

I discovered that if I’m going to continue to make these, I need to get another set of blocking tiles.  Our entire craft room / exercise room is covered in them but they’re 15″ and they won’t interlock with these.

I’m not sure where I’m going to wear this, but I don’t care.  It’s lovely and it’s all mine 🙂

  1. Very pretty! It looks similar in color to the small shawl I made a few months ago. I agree…large lacy knitting is one place where blocking always makes a huge difference.
