The Friendship Shawl is ready and can be downloaded here. The pattern is offered for free but in return I ask that you consider making a donation to Shelterbox. Shelterbox is a charity which responds instantly to natural and man-made disasters worldwide by providing boxes of aid to those that are most in need. Each box supplies an extended family of up to 10 people with a tent and essential equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. I've seen an example of the boxes and they're really cool.
You can download the pattern here and donate through Just Giving on the same page. The shawl is suitable for all levels of experience. Even if you've not knitted lace before this pattern is not difficult at all and contains charts and written instructions for the lace pattern. You'll need 200gr of 4ply/fingering weight yarn and 4mm needles.
I've updated the shop today too. We've got some Supreme Sock:
Some Exotic Cobweb Lace:
And only two colours of Supreme Lace, but aren't they pretty:
I've got tooth ache and have been to the dentist today for a temporary filling and antibiotics. Not slept very well for the last two days which has increased my neck pain too and I've got a thundering headache. Not my best day. I hope things improve for the weekend.
Have a great weekend.
