Thalia - A Finished Knit

Dear Fabic Stash,
I have been cheating on you, ignoring you even.  
Yep, it's the call of the yarn and the knitting needles.

The Pattern:


The Yarn:
Madelinetosh Merino Light in Gilded


Truly, this impressive shawl is a quick and easy knit; one I can recommend for beginner lace knitters.  I followed the pattern verbatim and worried endlessly about running out of yarn (weighing and calculating often) without need.



For more pictures and all the details check out my Ravelry page:



Back to fabric and quilty programming for now.
