Pea Vines

Another shawl has been completed. This is an Anne Hanson design (a very prolific designer) called Pea Vines and I think I will be knitting more of her patterns in the future.





I knitted this shawl as a KAL with a fellow Raveller. We were both going to knit the shawl in lace weight yarn and thus would knit the large size. When I started my shawl I thought my yarn (hand dyed by Emily The Enabler) was more of a light fingering than lace weight and so I decided to knit the medium size instead. In hindsight I should have stuck to the large size. Nevertheless the shawl measures 135 x 64cm which is quite a respectable size. I used size 3.5mm needles.

I thought the yarn, a 100% merino, was very apt for this pattern as it is called Sugar Snap! The first part of the shawl is slow going because the rows are long and many of them have nupps but by the time you get to the second chart the shawl begins to fly off the needles.
