Another Pretty

I recently finished knitting my third shawl from Sivia Harding's Mezzaluna Club.
This is Niome which is the last shawl in the series of six crescent shaped small shawls.
Blocked and drying
The yarn used was Abstract Fiber Mighty Sock a 50% merino, 50% tencel blend in the Lake colorway. The yarn has a beautiful sheen and is very drapy after blocking.
I started with a very generous 100 gram ball and finished with a mere 9 grams left.
Of the shawls I have done in this club this has been the most challenging.  The top portion I knitted up rather quickly but when it came to adding the bottom section of lace I had to take my time as there was not a wrong side rest row but patterning on both the right and wrong sides.
After the first repeat I did add a lifeline but found in the long run it was just easier to tink back as needed.  Generally the time to step away from the yarn is when the tinking begins.
This became my morning knitting project.
I also marked the p2tog on the chart to help differentiate the ssp's from the p2tog's.

This was a very enjoyable but mindful knit.
 Sivia is a artistic designer of lace and her patterns are a delight.
And I always love the touch of the beads!
