Spanish Christening Shawl




This is a design by Cheryl Oberle from her Folk Shawls book. I knit it in Elann's Devon, sportweight superwash wool in Mineral Green. I finally get to post this because I gave it to Gaby at her baby shower yesterday. I had about an hour to spare in finishing it. Yah!!!




This is my first lace shawl, and I'm sure it won't be my last, but I found the most tedious part to be the picking up of stitches at the edge for knitting on the lace edging. When this was done I then knitted a couple of rows and then the stitches were put on waste yarn.
