Phew, I know I've been teasing about this shawl for a while! Half Life is finally ready!
Half Life is a triangular version of Life Cycle from my Craftsy Class, Lace from the Inside Out. Worked flat, from the top down starting with a garter tab, Half Life is a study of double sided lace stitches that flow seamlessly from one section to the next. The stitches for Half Life are both charted and written out, to help you grow both your lace knitting and chart reading skills! I've set up a thread in my Ravelry group for those of you who are ready to cast on and might have questions!
Half Life can be knit in either Fingering, Light Fingering or Lace weight yarn, all you need to do is get gauge. I used a yarn I had been wanting to use for quite some time, Wollmeise Lace Garn in Petersilie (parsley).OH.MY.GOODNESS.... LOVE this yarn. It's a bit heavier than your typical lace weight and is constructed of 6 thin plies that give the yarn a smooth even construction making it easy to knit! It's soft and drapey, and rather perfect! Also, the skein has 1740 yards (1591 meters) on it! So, although I knit the large, there is still enough left over to knit a smaller version of Half Life as well.
how to go about buying it when it arrived in August. It's also possible to find as a destash on Ravelry and sometimes The Loopy Ewe gets a shipment in, but that goes quickly!
queue Half Life and then leave a comment below with a way to get in touch with you... I'll leave commenting open until the end of the day Tuesday October 15th. I'll get your yarn out to you quickly so you can cast on ASAP!
