In The Land of Oz

When I noticed a group on Ravelry called 10 Shawls in 2010, I marveled that anyone would aim to knit so many in a year. Now, having finished my third, I can see that it isn't such an impossible goal. Granted, mine are on the small side and meant to be worn as scarves...

Pattern: In the Land of Oz
Designer: Adrienne Fong
Yarn: Handmaiden Sea Silk
Color: Pale Teal
Needles: 4.0 mm. circular

Lace knitting is somewhat akin to doing a jigsaw puzzle or completing a crossword. There's a lot of concentration or focus on individual pieces or sections - then, all at once, the satisfaction of being able to view the work in its entirety.
