Rosebud Shawl

Did you see the Rosebud Shawl in Yarn Forward Magazine Spring Issue? I've had lots of requests to see pics of the complete shawl as the photos in the magazine didn't show all htedetails of the shawl. Actually, it's probably more of a stole than a shawl. I knitted the original version for the magazine (the blue version shown in one photo in the mag) in Posh Yarns Eva 2ply which is the same base yarn as my Luscious Lace - only takes one skein) and the scarf in my own Cashmere Lace. The scarf used the same number of stitches etc but smaller needles and it made a big difference to the size. Pixie has knitted a new sample for me in my own Merino Lace. Only takes one skein.

Modelled by my daughter Vanessa in our back garden a couple of days ago.Thats it for today folks. I'm busy getting Sockamania PLUS parcels ready to post.
