Look at this beautiful shawl! It's called Knightsbridge and is inspired by the upmarket shopping area of London. The London Craft Guide is being published this weekend by Yarn In The City. It's a crafty guide to London as well as patterns for knitting and other crafts. I've not seen the finished book yet but I've seen several of the projects in it and they're beautiful.
The book is being launched at Unravel this weekend. I'll be at Unravel too and can't wait to see the book. Yarn In The City, who organise yearly London Yarn Crawl and other events, have been showcasing the projects on their blog recently and this week it was my turn. I'll blog more about the book as a whole once I've seen it but I wanted to tell you about my design today.
Knightsbridge is a luxurious, delicate shawl worked in Sweet Georgia Yarns Merino Silk Lace. This is a yarn I have used several times now and it's luscious. I added beads for a touch of glamour but the shawl will be equally gorgeous without beads. Knightsbridge is worked from the top down into a hybrid triangular shape, which is a rounded triangular shape with a beautiful lace panel running down the centre back of the shawl.
You can read my interview with Yarn In The City, including my travel plans for this year and what crafty activities I take on my holidays, and order your copy of the book. It's available as a print book and an e-book.
