Kiri is a FO

This was an easy knit but it did get tedious with 200+ purl stitches when i was up to the 9th repeat. *fakes fainting*

Eilene, here's pics of my kiri after blocking.
I know I did not do a good job in blocking again. on the other hand, my cast off was rather tight, even though i used a much bigger needle.

A close up of the motifs. Lovely isn't it?

Pattern: Kiri Shawl from
Yarn: Alpaca Cloud in Iris from Knitpicks, 1 hank
Needle: Birch 4mm and 5.5mm circular needles

6 Loops:

That is just so gorgeous! The colour, the motif, everything.
I feel your purling pain too.. but now it is done and you can dance around with it like a crazy person, hoorah!

Just came over from the mystery shawlalong - am v v impressed with your gorgeous knitting. Everything you knit is what I want to knit too!
Could you give me some advice. I notice you're in Singapore (I'm in Australia) - where do you get your knitpicks and zephyr from? If you could email me that would be great.
Good luck on ms2
