un*chart*ered waters

i joined a KAL in one of my ravelry groups.  a woman in the group designed a shawlette in memory of her daughter, whom she lost early in pregnancy.  the shawlette was designed in conjunction of glimpse, 3IG's limited edition colorway.


clara has a charted pattern on its edge.  outside of my february PSOTMC charted heart socks, i've never followed a charted lace pattern.  i'm pretty excited about it - i'm also scared too!  it's time i learned to follow a chart.  especially if i want to knit lace.


i'm knitting with dream in color smooshy in pansy golightly.  so far i worked about half of the garter stitch portion:





once i finish knitting for my cousin, who's expecting a baby late spring, i will devote more time to clara. hopefully by then the kiddos won't be as needy.

  1. It's such a beautiful pattern, though I am sad it came about in such a terrible time for the designer. I hope it brought her comfort.

    I love the colour you are using, I haven't used DIC yet as it's harder to come by here but it always looks really special knitted up.
