Pat's Knitting and Quilting
March 22, 2012
I've been wanting to make one of Romi's Small Shawls for a long time and when this pattern came out, I knew it was "the one"
My Snow Iris's match perfectly!
Starting with some gorgeous Rambouillet Fiber in Polar Night from Julie Spins - I spun 4.7 ounces/ 597 yards of sport weight regular 3 ply. This was the 1st handpainted roving that I bought when I got my wheel 2 years ago - I still can't get over how rich and beautiful it is!
I have never had a shawl fit/stay on my shoulders so well - the shaping is such that it just stays there!
The handspun yarn created such soft subtle striping - perfect for this pattern!
Pattern: Erato (Ravelry Link) by Rosemary Hill
Here is how I blocked it. As I said before - I like the shape of this shawl!
a close up of the pretty lace edging - I love the little flair out garter wedges!
and lastly a view from the front
A completely enjoyable project from spin to finish!
