Borrowed from Fiberitis Post

I love the nupps in this shawl. I can see the pattern so beautifully this way. I have never seen a lace shawl knitted this way. Bev from Fiberitis took this shot of it . For more info go to her FIBERITIS blog. It is a lovely blog anyhow.

Is this accepted by lace knitters? I love that there is no negative space. I usually am squinting at lace patterns to see what they are really trying to depict. I want a shawl like this one. I dont want to make it though!

I don't like things that are difficult for me to see. Constellation names seem so wrong to me. I cannot for the life of me see some of the animals that are supposed to be in the sky. I know that some of them have lost stars and that makes it more difficult.

What do you know about this type of shawl?

I talk more in the comments!

No nupps for me! I am lazy. Looks great!

Beautiful. I have a shawl of a similar style/pattern in my queue (or favorites?) and even took at class on Estonian lace...

Beautiful shawl! The two things I don't do in knitting are nupps and shortrows. Life is too short for that kind of stress. I have major appreciation and praise for knitters like Channon who take classes in Estonian lace.

The shawl looks awesome! I am planning to make one with nupps one day.
