This is the Lightweight Mountain Peaks shawl by Miriam of Icarus fame (photographed at work). I made no modifications to the pattern barring a larger needle size to balance my yarn choice.
Yarn: Hand dyed single ply lace weight Merino wool from Spin*n*Knit on eBay
Needle: US 4 Susan Bates Circular (slightly blunt tipped for this)
I'm very pleased with how this turned out except for an error** in the border. I had contemplated sending this to State Fair, but I will knit another shawl instead. This was a great little practice piece to work with. I love Miriam's patterns; well written, easy to read, and a great finish. I'm working my way up to larger and harder lace. Whether or not this is a good thing is entirely relative!
Yarn Confessions start tomorrow. I'm going to limit them to my purchases at each store. It's going to take a few days. So delight in my gluttony. I've been impulse buying with the bunnies being sick. I bought quite a bit more than I realized too. Oops!
**ETA: The more I look at that sentence, the less I like it. What I meant to say was, I made a boo boo in the border and it really sticks out to me. Not that Miriam had an error. Her pattern was error free. (Not idiot proof though, I started the border three times before I figured out that my printer hadn't printed one of the symbols. Duh!)
