Growing Aeolian

Work on the Aeolian Shawl continues. It's been a while since I've knit lace and even at this early stage the rows seem very long.



It's a triangular/faroese shape worked from the top down, so the rows are only going to get longer and longer. I have to concentrate when I work lace, so I dare not pick it up when there are distractions. Progress will be slow.

How many Yuccas are you doing?
I did the minimum, but did extra Agaves.
I found the Agaves kind of flew by (well, depending on how you like nupps!)
See you in the Aeolian KAL!

Thanks for your comment Barb. Sorry for the delay in answering. I was away at a wedding and haven't knit a stitch or logged onto the internet for days.

I'm doing the Aeolian exactly as written for the larger size....that's the plan for now anyway.

Beautiful! I just enjoyed two great spinning books loaned from the library. 'A Fine Fleece' by Lisa Lloyd and'Start Spinning' Maggie Casey. I don't know if I mentioned that I only got about 900 plus yards from my light gray fleece. And, sweater patterns sure call for a lot more than that. My husband suggested maybe buying another fleece from the same sheep if its available.
