We have really been enjoying these last few days of summer. There has been a special birthday to celebrate, friends visiting and of course plenty of knitting. I’m having great fun making a Shetland lace shawl, Dianna Stevens’ Rose Garden which I purchased at Jamieson’s, together with 6 skeins of their lovely, lovely Ultra yarn in Frosted Grape. This shawl is knitted circularly, from the centre out and is based on Elizabeth Zimmerman’s classic pi shawl. Knitting this kind of lace is intensely satisfying and somehow makes my knitter’s brain very happy. And the shawl will be perfect for when the mornings and nights get colder. Which will be very soon now.
