Springtime shawl progress

Springtime shawl

There should be enough yarn for five repeats of leaves plus the bottom section; hopefully, also a knitted-on border along the top.

My plan is to reuse this scalloped border from Jane Sowerby's treasure of a book Victorian Lace Today.

And what an amazing interesting You tube video! Thank you for this bee!

How beautiful!
How much yarn do you plan to use to 5 repeats, the bottom section and the edge?
The Pacific looks even more beautiful on.
It fits you so good!

You are really speeding along. Very spectacular and the border will be very nice.

Thank you all for your kind words!

Ann: I've got 100 gr of this yarn (2 skeins) and think it will be enough. I've made a few shawls with this yarn before and one doesn't need a lot of it to make a big shawl.
