TKN 6: two lace shawls in progress

I am knitting two lovely and very different lace shawls.

One is the old Birch with Rowan's Kidsilk Haze for which I am creating a border as I go. This one is all fuzziness and fluffiness, freedom and a tiny bit of concern for the finished object.

The other is the new and not even totally published Mystery3 shawl. I am following blindly the instructions of the designer, and the cashemire I am using (Colourmart 100% cashemire in heavylaceweight) is much more restrained in its appearance, with an amazing stitch definition and in a modest charcoal color. I know that this one is going to be a wonder.

Both are very soft, both are a little beaded, and I am enjoying as much one as the other.

Knitting lace shawls is fun.
