Knitter Bunny's™ Dutch Rabbits and Yarns

Bunnies and Yarn, Need I Say More

Prairie Rose Blush Lace Shawl

So, I actually finished this shawl just before the New Year, but I blocked it this week and finally took some photos.  I started knitting this just before I left Indiana and finished it a few months after moving to Oregon.  The yarn is some luscious Briar Rose Fibers Sea Pearl.  I had a limited amount of this as it was an “end” or a smaller “put-up” than Chris’ normal Sea Pearl.  I really liked the color though, so I snagged it at Fiber Fest last spring.

If you’ve knit the Prairie Rose Shawl, you might notice that the edge doesn’t look quite the same.

While I would like to pretend that it was intentional, we all know it wasn’t.  I ran out of yarn.  There, I said it.  I ran out of yarn.  I knew I only had 400 yards, but I knit with abandon and the result was shorting myself on the edging.

Still, it doesn’t look too bad.  So, my fudging it a little and ending it in an optimal spot based on the chart I was in worked out.  Of course, this means that the next time I face the same situation, I will run out of yarn in a very very ugly spot.
