I received two skeins of scrumptious Malabrigo Silky Merino in Ankara Green in a swap a while back, and decided that my quick project to work on before the Spring KAL at my LYS would be a shawl. So I decided to knit Summer Flies even though spring hasn’t really even started here!
It’s coming along pretty well, I’ve finished the first three sections whilst watching some How I Met Your Mother (I love that show!). I really wish the pattern had charts though, I absolutely HATE knitting lace from written instructions.

If I ever muster the energy to knit a shawl, I’m starting with this one! I love this pattern! It’s looking good! The yarn is gorgeous!

198 Yds of Heaven is a good “first shawl” (well, it’s more of a scarflette), too. It’s knit in a worsted/aran weight so it goes by pretty quick!

It’s going to be lovely, I can tell already.

Very pretty lace pattern and a very nice yarn to match too. Lace knitting without a chart can be very painful!

I love the colour you’re using there. :D I have been thinking to make this one myself too… just need to get my current wips done first.
