Paisley Lace Shawl

While I do (really) have a bad case of startitis, this shawl has been on my needles since last fall. I pick it up, work on it for a week or so, then pick up something else.

These new projects I seem to be able to see through completion.

Now I must finish this paisley lace shawl.

It is the Paisley Lace Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark, from Interweave Knits, spring 2005. It's a simple to remember garter stitch lace pattern. See the little paisleys?

I'm using a lovely lace weight from Joslyn's Fiber Farm. It is Angel Hair in the colorway 'Plumes'. (In real life, there is more purple in the yarn. Why is it that sometimes colors just don't photograph well?!) I picked this yarn up at the MN Knitter's Guild Yarnover in spring 2006.

I'm doing extra repeats - I want a bigger shawl than the pattern specifies.
