Pæne billeder / Nice photos
You have to look at the shawl for one more day.... I got to Aarhus and found some places that should be free of dog-pee and good for shawls. Although there are no flowers with the shawl!
Knitted lace of Estonia", der lagde instruktioner til hele midterstykket, og et kant-mønster fra en meget tyk, estisk tørklæde-bog. Der kom kun kanter for de korte ender - som min niece gerne ville have det - og jeg havde lige en mindre krise sent fredag aften, da jeg fandt ud af, at jeg var nødt til at strikke diagrammet oppefra og ned i stedet for den "rigtige" vej. Heldigvis kan man overhovedet ikke se det på det færdige resultat.......
The pattern is a mutant with a combination of the "Maikell" shawl from "Knitted lace of Estonia" for the mid section, and then a pattern for the edge from another, thick, Estonian book about scarfs. I only made edges on the short ends - like my niece asked for - and I had a small crisis on Friday evening, when I discovered I had to knit the chart upside-down instead of the "right" way. Fortunately, you can't tell this from looking at the shawl........
The pattern is so pretty with the holes, nupps and crossed stitches. When I blocked the shawl, I had good use of the piano-wires I bought in December. It's so much easier making the long edges look pretty when using the wire. (Even though it was done in the dark hours!)
Sjalet er nu afleveret til min niece, der blev meget, meget glad. Så nu kan jeg læne mig tilbage efter veludført arbejde. Herligt!
At last - the shawl on top of Aros. This photo almost cost a little boy his life. He came running around the corner, but fortunately, he managed to steer around the shawl. IF he had run on top of it...... (My brother was really worried that a doctor could say the kind of words that came muffled out of my mouth!)
The shawl has been handed over to my niece, who got very, very happy. So now I can really lean back and relax after a well done job. Wonderful!
