FO: Blackthorn

I knew as soon as I started knitting Blackthorn that I wouldn’t be completing the whole pattern. I want to give this to a friend who is petite and a lot of shawl would swamp her. So rather than go to the fourth size of diamond, I added the border onto the third size. I decided to do the border in a contrast colour, simply because I felt the gold colour needed lifting. I cast off this morning and blocked it straight away:  


The Lace Leaf KAL is going on for another few weeks but I’ve got both my projects finished by week 5! I’m very happy!

  1. Your Blackthorn turned out very nice with the contrasting border. I do love the gold. Your petite friend should be very happy.

    I’m finishing up the section 4, and trying to decide if I keep it or gift it to my sister. She is 5’7″, compared to my 4’11”, and could wear it well. It seems I skipped my teen growth spurt.

    Thank you for organizing this KAL.

  2. Beautiful work. I really like that the edging is in a different color. Your are so talented! Do you normally find it easy to pair colors? Or is it something you’ve learned?
