When I finished the Fairy Web shawl a few months ago I still had some yarn left and I hadn’t gotten knitting lace in that yarn out of my system. I knew I didn’t want a lace shawl for myself in that yarn but I also knew I wanted to knit one. What to do? Not many of my friends are so in love with the color pink (weird!) that they would want a lace shawl in it but my urge couldn’t be reasoned with. Then it hit me, I do have one friend who likes pink and whose fashion style can sport a lace shawl. Excellent! And off I went to find a pattern that worked with the amount of yarn I had left.
It’s Forest Beauty by Tetiana Otruta.
The yarn is DROPS Lace from Garnstudio, color 3112 Powder Pink. I’m quite happy with it.
The shawl is really light and delicate, really romantic, a perfect summer shawl. Perhaps something to cover your shoulders with during a church wedding ceremony or to dress up an otherwise ordinary but comfortable outfit for a summer party. Or just something to feel pretty in whenever you want.
My friend will have a baby in a few weeks time and I took the opportunity to add a matching baby cardigan to the package.This is lila[c]loud by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne knit in Malabrigo Yarn Lace, color 17 Pink frost.
She has no idea there are knitted goods in the mail for her and I really hope she will enjoy this little summer surprise.
