The yarn is Jojoland Harmony (cobweb weight) and was acquired from a friend in a yarn swap. I came home with way too much lace weight so I figured that I really needed to do something about the thousands of yards of lace weight in my possession. There are many more lace shawls to come this year!
The pattern is called Rock Island and it is by Jared Flood. The crispness of the lace pattern has always intrigued me. The border is knit as one long strip and then you pick up along the side and start knitting in towards the center so that the number of stitches on the needles decrease as you go. The border strip felt like it took forever. Once I picked up the body, it zoomed along from there.
