The colour looks a bit washed out in these photos because I was taking them in a hurry. In the sunshine the yarn almost has a shimmer to it because of the silk content. It's so beautiful :-) The yarn is a merino/silk yarn from Dye For Yarn in a colourway called "Dragonfly Flying Too High"
The shawl is very long and narrow. I prefer my shawls a little shorter and deeper but I still love it. It was also very straight forward to knit so I'd recommend it if you're wanting to have a go at lace knitting. It's charted and has row by row instructions as well if you're not confident with charts (I know I'm not!)
Yay for fun and beautiful patterns :-)
I'm linking in with Tami's FO Friday post as usual. I've almost finished my scrappy hoody from wednesday although we have currently had a falling out over the sleeves... I think a compromise has been reached though. More about that later ;-) Thanks for dropping by!
