    It is gorgeous! You are right about it going perfectly with that coat. I’d not seen that pattern before, I may have to give that one a go myself!

    This is stunning. And what a beautiful colour! I know what you mean about Loop though. Temptation everywhere in that emporium of woolly delights.

    Love it. Am going to have to source this pattern and have a go myself. Much prettier than a simple scarf..

    Gorgeous! I’m off to add the pattern to my favourites. Oh my goodness, I would have been panicking with that stitch to repair!!

    Gosh Susan, you certainly keep yourself occupied with all your different knitting projects. How many things do you knit in a year? I love the shawl.

    As I seem to have developed a small obsession with knitting shawls I would like to pass on a bit of advice on blocking – no expert here. I have learned it is advisable to soak for at least an hour, this allows all the fibres to beome totally saturated, allowing you to stretttch the stitches without breaking the yarn. I use SOAK for soaking but there are others such as Euclan… Then i squeeze gently and towel roll to remove as much moisture as possible, the fibres however are still wet.

    Your shawl is beautiful and I encourage you to knit more and try lots of different shapes and designs.

    Love that! It goes perfectly with your coat. I’m also really liking your green conservatory!

    Love it. Shawl is stunning. Have started knitting a lace scarf for my mum but that has gone on the back burner as will probably end up as a Christmas present.

    Besides being addict to knitting and hand dyeing yarn, I’m also a shawl pattern hunter. Beautiful pattern!
