Shetland Triangle

Finally finished. Whew. It's cute, I like it. But it's not as big as I thought it would be. See the patten used 548 yards of Jaeger Cashmina, which comes 137 yds per 25 g. Is this right? Cause you were supposed to do only 8 repeats of the center panel. With my mere 370 yards (185 yards per 50g ball), I got through 11 repeats plus the edging with some left over. Oh well, yardage is yardage I guess, no matter what the weight is of the yarn.

Yarn Used: Louet Gems 100% mernio in colorway Caribou
Needles: Size 6 circular, 32 inches (this is my favorite length)

If I'm going to keep knitting lace, I've got to get me some blocking wires. :(

Beautiful art! And I am not talking about the painting!

Oooo, how pretty! That color is great; it'll go with so many things. I know what you mean about needing wires...but what an investment! Still, I guess they'd last forever, making them worth it.

Thanks for the complements, I'm proud of it but will have to find an occasion where I can wear it. It's not big like I wanted, but that's ok, it was a test run.
