Finished Object: Multnomah Shawl

Pattern: Multnomah Shawl

I love this project! It was my first experience with a lace pattern. I had to start the lace section over a few times but I finally got the hang of it. I wasn't so sure about the triangle shape. At first I felt like a cowgirl wearing it with the point in front but I now embrace that and wear it with my cowboy boots. Actually I wear it with everything. The variegated yarn has so many subtle colors that it matches a  lot of my clothes. I wish that it was bigger. If I made it again I would make it larger but still I love it. I am quickly becoming obsessed with shawls.

  1. Such beautiful colours in that yarn! Mmmmm malabrigo. Bet it feels great too!

  2. Gorgeous! Once you've been bitten by the lace bug you won't go back ;-)

  3. I agree with Evelyn. the Multnomah was my first lace project as well, but definitely not my last :)

  4. I have diligently been resisting the shawl craze, but your version of this pattern is so lovely, resistance may be futile!

  5. Beautiful! You did a wonderful job :)

  6. I know exactly what you mean. I scoffed at shawls, until I made one. Now I cannot wait to make another! Very pretty!

  7. It's beautiful. I bet it's super squishy with that yarn too.
