I love it! It fits just like I wanted it too, and it didn’t take much yarn. I used the numbers for the size 46, with thinner yarn this yielded a size of about 34 inches. I never swatch so I had one false in which I skipped an increase row and realized it would have been too small even if I hadn’t. I ripped it in a frenzy and immediately cast on again. I finished and wet blocked it last night, every little stitch is perfect now :)
After a few instances of tinking back, I realized that knitting lace of any kind with the little sleep I was getting this week was a bad idea. I made fewer mistakes after the afternoon naps I was able to sneak in. This knit just confirmed how much I really love the look of the feather and fan lace pattern. I love my shawl and now I have a little feather and fan to wear in the summer too. I can see making another of these in the future.
I may be just a little bit in love!
