This past week I finished Gail, and rediscovered the magic of blocking.
It makes such a difference!

I used one skein Handmaiden SeaSilk in the Ireland colorway and size 7 needles.
(Yarn found here.)
With the help of this chart, this truly was a painless, quick lace project.
As you know, I'm not a huge fan of variegated yarn, so the Ireland colorway, although beautiful, made me a little nervous. I have to say that I'm quite pleased with the result though. I think that the colors blended nicely and fairly evenly across the piece.

I love the sheen and drape of this gorgeous yarn.
I definitely will be working with it again in the future.

Lace shawls are so addicting! I'm already looking at more patterns!
