Two shawls going on

I've been knitting on two pieces from Victorian Lace Today. During the day, I work on the Syrian Shawl in Kidsilk Night in the Macbeth color. The yarn is too dark and fuzzy to see well by lamplight, so I work on it by day next to a window. Since I've added the wide point lace edging in place of the one in the pattern, this is a long term project. Very worth it, though.

By night, I'm working on the Scarf with Number 20 Edging in Louet Kidlin Pixie in the Colorado Spruce color. I love this yarn in all it's colorways. I may do something wider in the center section of this pattern, however. It's a fast and easy knit, once you get on to the chart and the rows are short....so far. I have a couple more photos on my blog.

I love the border and color for your Syrian Shawl. Your rendition is making me want to knit one now.

Beautiful! I especially like the color on the Syrian-style shawl, and I like your choice of edging better than the one in the book. I am looking forward to seeing them all complete!

That's such a beautiful colour you chose for the Syrian Shawl. This one's definitely on my To do list (along with about 12 others.....)
