Language of Roses

This was a test knit for Aimee from Finland and was fun to knit. The shaping is not done in the traditional ways, but rather in "triangles" in the middle and sides. It starts with the branches, goes into the leaves and ends with the roses. 

Yarn: Joslyn's Fiber Farm Lace Weight
Needle: US #4


Blocking was hard, but when I washed the shawl, I just squeezed enough water out of it so that it didn't drip across the floor, so it stayed wet while I pined and repined.
