Flower of the Sea

I love it when a project turns out better than expected.

Fiore di Mare Shawlette

This is my Fiore di Mare¬†Shawlette, knit in On Your Toes Bamboo in the ivory colourway. I was not at all sure if the finished piece would be, well, good. My gauge was a bit tight, the yarn isn’t really something one would use for a shawl, and I’m not particular good at short rows. But, goodness, am I ever glad I decided to give this project a try. After rinsing it and pinning it out to block, the end result is so pretty. (It looks a wee bit off in the picture because it had been folded up and I didn’t take the time to smooth it out nicely. Oops.)

Isn’t the flower beautiful? I was thinking it might look lovely on the back of a tank top (aka a shell).

Unfortunately, after finishing this up, my elbow has started to hurt again. So I think I’ll be taking another wee break from knitting. :(
