A manta ray in moonlight

My hands have been filled with this sparkly stuff for weeks (the white flecks are silver threads). Dream in Color Starry is nice to knit but a little stiff. I’ve read that it softens with washing.

It’s now a Shaelyn Shawl that I made as a Christmas present for my nice DIL (don’t peek, Sam!). I knitted six repeats instead of four and added an extra lace border. This is my first lace shawl. It’s likely to grow after blocking, but I can always frog back if it’s too long. It should be a delicate shawl, not a blanket.   Shaelyn unblocked
