Finished Object: Percy Shawl

I finally finished the Percy Shawl for my mom last week, and have some photos to share for those who haven't seen it yet on Ravelry.

It was quite a challenge because of the blooms chart (Chart B).  It's the first lace shawl I've knitted that has knitting instructions on both sides- instead of detailed knitting on one side and purling all through the opposite side.  It's what creates that ladder-like lace within the blooms in the center section.  The designer did a great job assembling this pattern.  Thanks for sharing it with us, Sanne Kalkman!

Finished Objects: Ravelympics Projects

I was able to participate in the Ravelympics:  a knitting event coordinated with the Winter Olympics timetable.  Rules: Challenge yourself to knit a project or two during the span of the Winter Olympics.  I reached all my goals except one... I could not finish the Percy Shawl in time, but it's almost done...

Here are my finished projects with their corresponding Ravelympic medals
