UFO Sighting!!

We(DH, Kimi, and I) took a trip to DC this past Summer, and I started the Shoalwater Shawl just before we left so that I'd have an easy lace project to work on while on the plane and subway. Well, I hardly put it down while we were away, but as soon as we returned, I set it aside. I've brought it out of the closet for a picture, and I'm hoping that giving it some attention will rekindle my interest in finishing it, so here it is:

That's Cherry tree Hill's Merino sock weight yarn in the Black Cherry colorway(I think). It is a lovely yarn, and it makes the Old Shale lace pattern look Victorian to me. I'm looking for some words of ecouragement here, so feel free to post 'em.

We're having a friend over for dinner tonight, so it's off to the grocery store I go. Have a wonderful Saturday!!

Sheila your shawl looks beautiful. I can't wait to see the finished product. Just think about how wonderful it will look once you are finished. That's what I keep telling myself as I'm knitting Kiri. So far I've gotten up to the 10th repeat and can't wait til I'm finished. Almost 2 skeins down and 3 more to go. This is my first time knitting a shawl. Once we both finish our shawls we should go out an celebrate.

Your shawl is just lovely. What size needles are you using? I just began mine with Diaketo Diamusse, size 8 needles. I almost want to start over, although I am on row 63, as I really wanted more of a lace effect. I can't wait to see more of your shawl!
