'Ava's' shape is very flattering as the insertion creates a curved shawl with some shoulder shaping so it sits nicely across your shoulders.
'Ava' is knitted in my BFL Dream Lacey Sock which is a heavy laceweight yarn. If you find laceweight yarn a bit intimidating then this yarn weight is perfect for you.
I've booked a Notebook advertising spot for 'Ava' on Ravelry for February and I'm just trying to decide which ad to run. Here are my two options, which one do you like?
The shawl was modelled by my youngest daughter Emily and I love her hair in these photos. She's always had long beautiful hair. I'm quite jealous of her hair but like a lot of teenage girls who have long hair, there comes a day when you want a change so on Friday she had her hair cut. I love her new hair style too. It makes her look so different. Here is a photo taken at the hair dressers:
I'm hoping she'll model for me today if the rain stops by the time she gets home from school, so I'll have proper photos of her new hair-do later in the week. By the way, when I got fed up with my long hair as a teenager, I cut it really short and regretted it for about 20 years.
