Tassled Estonian Miralda

The Nancy Bush Miralda shawl needed tassles, don't you agree? A lovely shawl wich is better in reality than in the book. I extended the pattern for a symmetric shawl. I used two strands of yarn which become a 4-ply 100% cashmere from Colourmart which in its original 2-ply should be about 2/22nm. The shawl took 56g yarn and including tassles it's 63g (693m if I have guessed the yarn weight correctly), which means there is plenty of yarn left for another equivalent! I used 4.5mm Knit Pro which gave me a 196cm hypotenuse and 81cm from top to tip (blocked size, relaxed it is slightly smaller).

Summer in the garden

Summer is here! The temperature reached 40C in the sun yesterday. The garden is thrieving. I mix Hosta, Heuchera, Astrantia with strawberries and cherries.

4 weeks knitted lace, cobweb version

The shawl is growing pretty quickly even if the needle is just 2.5mm the final size will not be very different from the Grignasco rasberry colouerd shawl I made previously.
