Travelling Shawl finished

I am so pleased with my lovely shawl. This pattern is fantastic for a lace beginner like me as it teaches you so much about the stitch pattern, the importance of every little yarn over and has a good chart to read for beginner lace knitters like me.

I have got lots of pictures – one shows it unblocked. I can’t quite believe that this crumpled heap turned out so beautiful. The colours of my shawl remind me of a butterfly wing and that is exactly what happens during blocking. The crumpled heap takes on a different shape and emerges as a lovely piece of lace. I have also taken pictures of it artfully draped on my dummy, from the back and how I would wear it to the front. I have also posted a picture with my favourite brooch of the moment pinned onto it. Hope you like it.
