I am back from my vacation and as always work has been crazy. My aunt loved the shawl and she cried when we visited her in Washington. I am now working on two shawls at the present time. First one is from the Heirloom Series from Sharon Miller called the Grey Shawl (HAP), I haven't take any pictures as it is just a small triangle right now. I am using KnitPicks bare lace yarn which is a very pretty cream color, 100% wool for the center which will be a diamond. The borders are the all Shale design with varying degrees of grays.
The other shawl that I am working is the Peddler's Wool shawl from Folk Shawls (Cheryl Oberle), in which I am using a hand-dyed alpaca lace yarn from a gal from Oregon who I had met on line. It is so soft. The main part (top) is a color she calls Autumn, which is yellows, oranges, greens, and brown; very pretty. For the lacer part, I am going to use same kind of yarn, but in a copper color. Since both shawls are in the beginning stage and just garter stitch, I will wait a little while before I take any pictures.
Until next time,
