This past weekend was interminable. Bruce was out of town and I had to cope with everything on my own. I did a lot of projects around the house, but not much knitting. But last week, before Fred became ill I did start my second Liken Shawl. I pretty much winged the first clue, casting on 46 stitches and doubling stitches where it felt right. I didn't do three sections like the original, only two. This should cause the lace patterning to start at my shoulders.
As a reminder, these are the colors that I pulled from my stash. From left to right - Divinity, Cherry Garcia and Chestnut. All from Zen Yarn Garden, all Serenity 20, one of my favorite fingering weight yarns - a 70 % superwash merino, 20 % cashmere, 10 % nylon combo.
