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