The Lace Lovers Club - July Design

If you're a Lace Lovers Club member and haven't received your July parcel yet (all UK members should have theirs by now and I'm hoping most of the European parcels have arrived too, but North American, Australian and New Zealand parcels may not have arrived yet) you may wish to look away now.
Let me introduce Cora, which is a stunning shallow crescent shawl knitted in Twinkletoes Sock which has a lovely silvery sparkle. I decided the shawl needed a bit more bling so I added some 4mm miracle beads. 
Cora starts with the wide lace border which is worked as a rectangle. Then a combination of short rows and decreases create the shallow crescent shape.
For the knitted sample I dyed Twinkletoes in a silvery grey with a hint of pink. For the club yarn, however, I decided to go for a blend of silver, charcoal and cream. A very elegant, timeless colour for a very elegant shawl.
Getting photos was challenging. We've been having a heatwave for a few weeks now and bright sunshine is not easy when you want to take photos. 
How about a close up of the lace pattern?
If you're not a club member, then you'll have to wait till October to get your hands on this pattern. If you feel like you're missing out on the fun, then the next Lace Lovers Club which runs from October to December opens for sign ups on 1 August. Sign up to my newsletter to be notified when sign ups open.
