FO: Lannis Port

THE HOLIDAYS MADE ME SO TIRED, YOU GUYS.  Also, I'm writing this before coffee; this may get interesting.

Christmas knitting got away from me, as always, so I still haven't been able to send some things.  But the recipients aren't expecting them and they don't knit know about this blog, so HA, gonna write about stuff anyway.

It's a shawl!  It took a month!  Ooooh, aaaaah:
Bananaboat [Rav] by Sue Berg; knit with 2-ish skeins of Knit Picks Gloss Lace in colorway Port


This pattern is free! on Ravelry, vaguely translated from German.  I went up a needle size (no long-length circs in size US5 at my house), so I only did 3.5 of the 4 total repeats of the lace chart (for yarn usage reasons, rather than size).

 


I named the project "Lannis Port" for Game of Thrones reasons; it seemed clever in my brain at the time...  using yarn in the Port colorway + fancy like royalty + I had just finished A Feast for Crows (AKA Book 4).  Cersei wishes she had this shawl!

That is really pretty. I keep meaning to try Knit Picks yarns as they are pretty reasonable and we can get them in the UK now. They look good quality for what you pay.
