A Spring Mystery

There have been times over the past year when I felt I would never have the concentration level to be able to knit a lace shawl ever again. However, thankfully those days are (mostly) behind me. I have my evenings free and when Alice from Socktopus announced a Spring KAL at the start of April I decided to take the plunge.
I even managed to keep up with clue one (there were two weeks between clues)
Spriteling Clue One
Clue two was done on time as well, but then I lapsed. Finishing socks, presents, life generally got in the way. However when I started to see some of the finished shawls on Ravelry I knew I needed to buckle down and finish this one.

So, here I present you with a finished Spring Mystery (Spriteling) Shawl.
Spriteling
Made in Malabrigo Sock Yarn (which I now realise is far better suited to non-footwear).
Spriteling
The colourway is Indiecita, which is hard to describe and even harder to photograph... a greeny, bluey, greyish mixture of colours. not quite variegated but far more coloured than a semi solid.
It was always destined for a shawl, and perhaps would be better suited to one a little less lacey, but I love it all the same.

Gorgeous Roo!
And I'm definitely with you on the practical application of malabrigo "sock" yarn!

I felt the same way when Rose was born. In fact, the time between being less dependent and being able to crawl and grab anything in sight turned out to be perfect for shawl knitting. :-D Now I have nowhere left in the house that's really safe for blocking..!

I love the yarn colours. Would be wasted on feet!

The shawl is fabulous! I think the yarn works really well with the lace :~)
