FO Friday: LazyKaty

You may have noticed in yesterday's post... I finished my Lazy Katy shawl!

Unusual shaped shawl with lace border lazykaty

This shawl was just so quick, I could hardly believe it. The center stockinette portion just flew by, and the lace border was pretty simple as well. The crochet bind off was a bit tricky -- luckily, there's a video on YouTube that explains it well.

I upsized this shawl by quite a bit -- you're meant to knit to 153 sts before the border, and I knit up to 234. However, I did use smaller needles (I used 4s when the pattern recommended 8s). It did turn out bigger than the pattern as written, but not huge.

I really, really love it. It was easy to knit, but difficult to block, as you would imagine from the spiraling shape. I blocked it quite aggressively, and I ended up running out of pins! So there are a handful of scallops that didn't get pinned out... hopefully no one will notice ;)
