Two days ago I bound off the Clementine Shawlette. I have yet to block it, but was eager to post photos, so here they are.
Pattern: Clementine Shawlette, Interweave Knits, Spring, 2007. Designed by one of my personal favorites, Michele Rose Orne.
Yarn: 1 skein Briar Rose Fibers' Sea Pearl (50% Merino, 50% tencel).
Needles: size 4 Bryspun circular.
Notes/Thoughts: Like everyone else who's knit this, I agree it's a great starter pattern for lace. I easily memorized the 3 different rows of patterning and found them easy to repeat. Still, there was counting involved, so I couldn't do it absent-mindedly.
I love the yarn. Sea Pearl has a pretty sheen, a soft drape, and felt so nice on my fingers. One skein was the perfect length (I have maybe 5 yards left) and perfect weight for the project. These photos don't do justice to the color, a mix of grey-blues, sea-green-teal and plum. So pretty yet subtle.
And unlike with Clapotis, I can actually imagine wearing this little shawl.
