Summer Flies

As many of you know I have been fiddling with the needles a lot recently in addition to the crochet that I have on the hooks. Because of this, I have had a few different "wins" as far as getting things off the needles.

With that said, I wanted to share with you my completed "Summer Flies" shawl.

It did not take long at all to knit up - a few days, 5 at the most. In fact, it was such a fun knit, I cannot even tell you how long it took. I would start a section and in no time (it seemed), I'd be finished with that section.

I knit it on size 9 needles using Patons Lace with Sequins. Yup - it even has a little sparkle to it.

I would recommend this pattern for any knitter. I cannot believe I had a good time knitting it.

I have that in my que, so think I might have to revisit that and maybe cast that one on soon. It looks so pretty and airy.

If you use a lace weight yarn with bigger needles, it does come off as very light and airy. The Man is actually surprised at just how light this thing is. Let me know if you make it and if you liked it :) Pictures always welcome :P
