I’m going to try the ‘Birds Eye Shawl’ pattern from heirloom knitting. I thought I’d keep this first shawl simple, never having made one before and only having done 3 or 4 lace projects – two of which were facecloths. Last year, my sp10 pal sent me a lovely hank of wine-coloured laceweight wool, about 600m in length. I’ve looked through tonnes of patterns trying to find one I like and that would do the yarn justice. I’m hoping that this one will.
If the idea works, there’ll be a nice wrap to go with my strappy black dress 🙂
