Rowan Fine Lace has always been one of my favorite lace yarns. I’ve been using it for more than 10 years and will use it in the future. It is very beautiful, luxurious and high-quality yarn from England.
Happy birthday, Estonia!
Last year Estonia started yearlong celebration of 100th birthday. For our small country it was very important milestone.
Good Bye, 2018!
It has been very busy year, we created, knitted and published 52 patterns!
I had some favorites this year that I would like to mention.
How it’s made
I thought it would be interesting to show how shawl is created from scratch, what happens behind closed doors.
I must say, there are reasons why not every pattern is done this way. Since this work was done by me personally, I didn’t quite finish pattern before starting. I will add comment where I did things differently.
My pattern How It’s Made (available for free) was translated to Danish by Marianne Holmen on https://strikkeglad.dk. How cool is that 🙂
Is shawl only for special occasion?
I’d say, it is not. My first shawls were Swallowtails by Evelyn A. Clark and I used heavier lace weight mohair blend. I made one for myself and few for colleagues. I wore mine every winter for years, first on wool coat and later on with leather jacket.
