Clementine Shawlette

Two days ago I bound off the Clementine Shawlette. I have yet to block it, but was eager to post photos, so here they are.

Pattern: Clementine Shawlette, Interweave Knits, Spring, 2007. Designed by one of my personal favorites, Michele Rose Orne.

Yarn: 1 skein Briar Rose Fibers' Sea Pearl (50% Merino, 50% tencel).

Needles: size 4 Bryspun circular.

Modifications: None.

Notes/Thoughts: Like everyone else who's knit this, I agree it's a great starter pattern for lace. I easily memorized the 3 different rows of patterning and found them easy to repeat. Still, there was counting involved, so I couldn't do it absent-mindedly.

I love the yarn. Sea Pearl has a pretty sheen, a soft drape, and felt so nice on my fingers. One skein was the perfect length (I have maybe 5 yards left) and perfect weight for the project. These photos don't do justice to the color, a mix of grey-blues, sea-green-teal and plum. So pretty yet subtle.

And unlike with Clapotis, I can actually imagine wearing this little shawl.

What a beautiful color pattern on this yarn. I definitely think you should wear this one - it is lovely.

so very pretty--yarn, pattern. wondering why this one is more likely to be worn than the clapotis. or is that too cosmic a question?
