I've been slowly knitting away at the Mediterranean Lace Shawl over the last eight months! It's my on- the-go project - I finally got it blocked, finished, photographed and I just love it. I can't help but feel a real sense of accomplishment as this is my first cobweb weight shawl project.
This design is by Maureen Egan Emlet, published in 'A Gathering of Lace' by Meg Swansen.
Used approximately 2,500 metres ( 7 balls and a small amount of another ) of cobweb lace yarn in Natural by Jamieson and Smith. The back measures at 35" width x 28" deep, and each front panel - 29" length x 20" width, borders included.
It has a few really complicated rows but each and every stitch was so worth it at the end.
Love the soft and feminine look...
I have to admit, I'm not really a shawl-wearing person, and making this was more about wanting to knit it than wanting to wear it. But now that it's done, I'm looking forward to wearing this on cool evenings on the beach and places where I normally wear my pashminas i.e. cinemas!
Hope you'll have a lovely week ahead!
