After family tragedies, two frozen shoulders (separate occasions) and 3 moves (yes, I'm a sucker for punishment) and a forefinger surgery that left it deformed (try knitting with that), I'm back! I've picked up my Nine Months of Knitting: Great Expectations project. The Heirloom shawl construction you've read in previous posts has now been completed.
The Heirloom Shawl was inspired by a shawl knit by my Aunty Avril for my baptism in Scottish Shetland lace wool; a delicate shawl that has become an heirloom in our family. This is a different design, but my version of a baptism shawl for baby or a work of art to wear on your shoulders on chilly days and evenings. Done up in the delicious Handmaiden Maidenhair, baby and adult will find it soft, soft, soft My knitter Joan Kass suggested we encourage a find your fade shade for this project. I’d love to see your photos on Ravelry where you can purchase the pattern for $8!
