Pattern: Alhambra by Anne Hanson
Yarn: Posh Yarn Eva 2ply shade Rhyme
Yardage: just under 40g of a 55g skein
Size: 39" x 12.5" after blocking - 15 pattern repeats
Needles: 3.25mm bamboo straights

Very pleased with the finished result! The scrolls are such a striking design, and well worth the lace pattern on both sides (no purl "rest" rows!).

The KSH knitting is going well (thanks for asking CA!), and I've also started a more summery cardi in Rowan Wool Cotton. This is yarn that I've had in stash for a couple of years so again, nice to use it. The pattern is Tea Time from the RYC Classic Summer book.

Wow, Alhambra looks even more amazing after blocking - what a stunning shawl. A definite show stopper!

I'm loving seeing all of your new knits, very inspiring.

Alhambra looks great! I love the colour runs across/up it :-)
It is funny how a little more experience helps with knitting stuff - like the little icarus I finished after having put it down for two years in part cos chart reading was hard and then I'm like what was wrong with me? This is easy!

Alhambra is stunning. I love the way it resembles entrelac, but is much prettier.
