Day 12 of the Drawing Challenge and a Knitting Pattern

Day 12: Draw your most recent accomplishment.

This is a drawing a lace shawl that I designed recently. The shawl was inspired by the architecture of the Eiffel Tower  and is composed of lattice lace sections, ridge sections and rows of eyelets to suggest the scaffolding and platforms of the tower.

This shawl is the first knitting pattern I’ve written but it was enthusiastically received when published on Ravelry.com. I am very pleased to say that there are more than 130 shawls in progress (or already completed) right now. To me, that is an accomplishment I can feel proud of.

This drawing obviously does not do the shawl justice, but you may find it interesting nonetheless. I have become an avid knitter over the past year and a half, such that I am often thinking about how to paint and draw knitting. Who knows how these different art forms might intersect in my future!
