Pear Drop KAL Superstars!

We had a blast with our Pear Drop knit-along! Can you tell we are proud of our gorgeous lace shawls?

Jaime was the mastermind behind this KAL. She was one of the first to power through the Ysolda Teague pattern, knitting it in the mysterious steely blue Wine Gum colorway of Scrumptious Lace.

The award for quickest knitter goes to Pink, who whipped up her lace shawl in just four weeks! Pink used Malabrigo Lace in Verde Esperanza.

I made my Pear Drop in Scrumptious Lace in Midnight. I finished mine on a 12 hour flight back from China--the perfect time to work on a lace knitting project if you can't sleep on planes! I love the way the lace blocked out on this delicate little thing.

Betsy made the larger size of the shawl--a nice size to wear around the shoulders. She knit it up in Scrumptious Lace Treacle Toffee. Lovely!

Caitlyn may not be wearing her shawl yet, but we are dang proud of her! This is her first lace project and she hasn't been knitting long, but she's doing amazing! She chose Gold in Scrumptious Lace. She's almost done with the lace edging and then the middle of the shawl will be cake!

Chase chose Teal Blue for her shawl and it looks fantabulous. She wins the award for best smile!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the knit-along! You are all amazing!
