So enough of the weather report. I brought a new sample to Lila and Claudine's this weekend, meet the Trellis Rose Shawlette.
It is a beautiful shawlette with the best border on it. I used my handspun, Giselle for the body of the shawl and a no name brownish gray for the glorious border. I also recently received a new shawl pin. It is carved from a sea shell and is so pretty. I found them at WC Mercantile, I emailed them, ordered two and they were shipped out so quickly. If you are looking for unique shawl pins, check them out!
One of best things about this shawl was the knitting fairies were looking down kindly at me. I did not manipulate my yarn in the body of the shawl at all, I simply started knitting from my skein and the gray of the main part of the shawl flew off the needles, when I started to transition to the edges, the reds, pinks and hints of brown slide through my fingers. Once again, my yarn makes me look like a much better knitter than I truly am. I'll take the luck!
