Lacy summer winds up

A Long Lacy Summer comes to an end today. I had hoped to have a couple of shawls done this summer but that was not to be.

I did manage to finish the Mandala.



I managed one scarf - Isobel.



And a pair of lacy socks, the heart socks.



I started the Maltese shawl with great enthusiasm but so far I have only managed 12 repeats. I discovered the heat and mohair are not compatible. Mohair sticks like glue to sweaty palms. This shawl will have to languish until the cooler weather starts (summer will end, right?).
