Lacy Baktus

Finally, I have halfway decent photos to show you. This project has been so difficult to photograph. Something about the handpainted colors, the camera can’t get a good focus on them.

Pattern: Lacy Baktus by Terhi Montonen with permission from Strikkelise who designed the original Baktus.
Yarn: 1 skein of Artful Ewe hand dyed merino, worsted(?)
Needles: US #5 (3.75 mm) Addi Turbo circular
Notes: This is such a lovely, easy project. I think it suits the yarn well – better than you can tell in the photos, though I had my doubts in the beginning few inches! I tried to get a few photos that show the true color of the yarn, plus the finished size of the shawl.

Overall, I liked this project enough to immediately cast on for another one. 🙂 This last photo, while poor quality, does at least show how big it turned out when knit with this yarn/needle combination.
