Rowan Kidsilk Haze Shawl

on March 13, 2012

I made two of these beautiful lace knit shawls – one for my mum in Majestic (Mulberry colour) and this one below in Ice Cream.

They took me ages to complete as they have hundreds of stitches and if you make a mistake it is really difficult to unpick as the fibres start to blend together.

It was lovely to be able to knit with quality yarn though, especially when you have been used to cheap 99p a ball wool for making toys. The wool is from Rowan and is a blend of super kid mohair and silk and is really fine.
