FO Post: Flower Basket Shawl


The endless parade of FO's continues!  This Flower Basket shawlette only took me two weeks or so to knit, and I think it's a really good fit for the yarn.  I had bought this Handmaiden Seasilk a bit on a whim, and there was a minute there where I wasn't sure how the variegation would work with lace.


And whether or not it was successful, I like it.  It's mostly magenta and a very bright, citrusy orange, with a little bit of pistachio and paler orange in there too, and this pattern is just basic enough to let the colors shine while still being interesting enough to keep my attention.


I think it will be a good little scarflette to wear with a t-shirt and jeans.


I didn't really see it while I was knitting it, but the lace really does look like little flower baskets.  As usual, Evelyn Clark's little lace shawl patterns are well-written and addictive as hell, with a super cute product.


Yet another one to add to the shawl drawer!
