Isaura

Isn’t that a beautiful name?  It just flows.  I-sau-raaaa.

Isaura Shawl (4 of 8)

I’m in love with this shawl.  I have worn it over and over since I blocked it in January.

I added little gold beads all along the edge.

The yarn is absolutely scrumptious.  It’s a dark brown with undertones of bluish gray.  Awesome dye job.  I’d never worked with Spirit Trail yarn before.  Must.  Repeat! I only had about a yard of yarn left when I was done.  For a second there I was nervous that I’d have to rip back a row or two just to bind off!

The pattern was very easy to follow, although I admit that at first I though the lace was wrong because it’s a staggered lace.  But I went with it and love the result.

Can I tell you that I’ve wrapped this shawl a million different ways around my neck, tucked under my coat, twisted, etc. and when I shake it out, it still has the original shaped from when I blocked it?  In fact, I took these pictures after wearing it half a dozen times.  See how well the lace holds it’s shape?   LOVE that.

Cristi and I are working on a design together.  It’s been a blast so far.  Stay tuned for more deets!!!
