I've been catching moments to work on the Feather and Fan Shawl for a few days. After a few evenings worth of knitting on the dpns, it looked like a lunch lady's hairnet. :-/

No, it's not a hairnet!

Much better on circs!

There are still 15 rows or so left in the first chart, but it's all ready on a 24 inch circular needle and over 200 stitches around.

Chris from Briar Rose sent me over here. I'm just about to get some of her yarns for my shop and was looking for some Angel Face Store Sample ideas. This Feather and Fan Shawl is a great way to use her fibers. I think I'm stealling your thought. I've been eying that shawl for some time now.
Thanks for the idea.
Great Blog, by the way. I'm adding you to my Bloglines. What's another one, right?

Sorry for the typos;-)

When the top picture showed up the first thing I thought was, "Broccoli!"

I couldn't have been more wrong.

Thanks for the compliments :) I'm really enjoying the Feather and Fan Shawl and the Angel Face. It's not splitty like a lot of other lace weight yarns and the colors are to die for! I'll add your blog to my Bloglines, too.

Phollower: Blue broccoli? Well, I guess blue broccoli is better than having Adam Sandler's "Lunch Lady Land" stuck in your head like I have for a few days.

Hi! It's Chris from Briar Rose Fibers. Thank you for the inspiration of the shawl from A Gathering of Lace....I didn't have that book! Can you believe it? I am happy you are liking the Angel Face......I have dyed some for myself! Which almost never happens!
