Lace, Lace, Lace

I've been working on lace this weekend.  I didn't get quite so much done as I had hoped (I had hoped to finish)

but I did get enough to that I can see the end.  Literally.

There is a green to Turquoise section left and the turquoise to dark blue and then it looks like it thinks about going to the turquoise and just a hint of the green again.

I think, because of the visual weight of the dark blue, I am going to play some colour games with the turquoise and whatever else is there and finish off the shawl with the blue.  It just seems like the right way to end and use up all of the yarn.

I am going to need every bit of the yarn.  A lace edge on something of this scale needs to be nice and wide and I think mine is going to be just a little bit shy of the way I would prefer it to look. 

Of course that doesn't mean I am going to reknit it to get that wider look.  Not at all.  I love the way it looks.  That wee bit of a wave, that smallest bit of a roll and sway. Points to finish off the long columns.  I love the way it is finishing up.  You can love an imperfect thing and accept it as it is.

And that is how we roll over here at wee Chez Needles.
