Three weeks lace
This is the second shawl of my design concept. It has been hibernating some time while knitting the "Four weeks lace shawl". It is based on the patterns I designed myself for my knitting class this winter, but it also has the traditional Shetland frame. Do you think the choice of colour is peculiar? I knitted a bespoke shawl to match my winter jacket in this colour combination. I don't think I would have come up with such a combination myself , but actually it is very pretty. Happy, happy orange! 45g of 2/28nm Zegna Baruffa Cashwool bought from Colourmart. This 100% merino is very soft, it is a bit thinner than I expected but it is of course also about density, not just length per kg :-). Tonight it shall be blocked.
