It’s taken me a while to share this but I’m pleased to say that my latest design The Moon and the Sky Shawl is up on Ravelry 🙂
This design came about after the purchase of some Theseus Lace yarn from Eden Cottage Yarns in the Steel colourway. As soon as I got my hands it’s luscious squishyness I had visions of a delicate, cobwebby shawl and I just had to drop everything else and cast on a swatch! Made up of 75% merino and 25% silk this glossy, fine laceweight yarn is a dream to knit with.
The pattern alternates between stockinette and lace panels, with the lace repeat worked over 6 stitches and 8 rows, with little size 8 beads placed with a crochet hook as you go along.
What I also love about this yarn is the way the colour varies in tone to create subtle silvery stripes in the stockinette panels…
As the finished shawl is quite large it be worn in a variety of ways.
Here it is ‘in action’ when I wore it to Mr. A’s annual work conference…
…and with the shoes… 😉
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Amanda at Dissemiknit for tech editing this pattern for me, and to my lovely test knitters on Ravelry who gave lots of valuable feedback and provided some great photo’s for the project page – do go and check them out!
Happy knitting x
