I think this may have become obsessive. I have gone from shawl-less to owning three in as many months. I love them so much that they live on the backs of my lounge suite. I have turned the loungeroom into the den of an 80 year old woman. All it needs is doilies and plastic flowers!
So bad has the issue become that I have ordered Lace Style, Wrap Style and Knitting Lace Triangles. I bought lace weight yarn on Sunday. LACE WEIGHT!!!! This has gone too far I tell you. Too far by half. I mean how many shawls does one woman need?
Anyway, for the record, this one is Heartland Lace Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark knit with Knitpicks Gloss in the Pumpkin colourway. The yarn is a silk-merino blend and is just lovely on the hand. If you can get hold of some I would highly recommend it. Mine was generously gifted to me by Sam. The design is gorgeous, complex and geometric and I enjoyed every moment of knitting it.
