Aglaea - A Finished Knit

Aglaea ~ Greek: Ἀγλαΐα "shining one"
The Greek goddess of beauty, splendor,
glory, magnificence and adornment.

The Pattern:
(see Part 1 - Thalia - here)

The Yarn:
Madelinetosh Merino Light in Butter
1.2 skeins or 520 yards

Aglaea is another relaxing lace shawl design by Kirsten Kapur (Through the Loops Designs).  The pattern is well written and includes both written instructions and charts.  I am a chart reader and tick off each row as I progress.  Charts look awfully complicated at first glance, but rest assured that once you get started and understand some of the chart reading basics you'll find it's not as difficult as it looks.

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

As you can see, it has been cold, grey and wet in Melbourne this week.   Propped on the couch under a quilt with the knitting needles and a coffee close at hand is where you will find me as I hibernate.

Have a great weekend, stay warm - or cool - wherever you may be.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous, Rita! The lace, the color, and it's blocked so well. I recently got hooked on charts and also tick off the rows. Beautiful!

  2. This shawl is absolutely beautiful! I always amazes me, how you manage to knit these between shawls in between your wonderful quilts. Maybe someday I will have the knitting stamina to make a beautiful shawl.

  3. Gorgeous!!!!!!! I'm going to have to add that pattern to my favorites on Ravelry!!! I love the yarn you used =D

  4. Beautiful! But I don't know how you find the time to do it all!

  5. beautiful! i just looked at your thalia [somehow i missed that post]... i should have got all the patterns but only got the third of the three graces. love this pattern and will start it next.

  6. That's so pretty! I love the colour =D

  8. Bee-youtiful! Absolutely gorgeous! Enjoy the cool weather and warm coffee. :)

  9. Absolutely stunning! But do you ever sleep? Just wondering!!!

  10. Just lovely. My gran could make anything but I lack talent when using yarn and needles of any sort. I will look on enviously from afar. Enjoy your beauty.

  11. Now that I have started knitting again, I can appreciate how beautiful your knitting work is.
