For this particular photo shoot, we took a trip to a nearby park. Neither of us had been to this park before, so it was nice to see that it was actually well kept and had a lot of walkways. There was also a little pond at this park that apparently is home to a million turtles. Okay, so it wasn't million but I counted at least 8 turtles. Just sitting at the edge of the pond was enough to draw turtles over. I'm guessing that people feed them so that's why they swim over. We didn't have any food for them and thus the turtles quickly lost interest in us.

Belle Epoque was knit with 2 skeins of Manos del Uruguay lace weight yarn. The actual amount of yarn used was 84 grams, which is 736 yards, knit on a US 5 (3.75 mm) 40" circular needle. The shawl is not knit in the round, but by the end there are around 500+ stitches, making the circular needle a necessity. This pattern is available for purchase in my Ravelry shop here: SpiderKate Knits Designs.
