When I first saw this pattern it was made as doily( table centerpiece).
Almost year later found it in Muhv's blog . She got tutorial from Estonian lace making course where she learned to knit world famous "Haapsalu sall" (click on pics to see bigger, also there is few words in English in bottom of page) .
The "nupp"(knit 5 from 1stitch,purl 5tog at next WS row) is also originally from Estonia as well.( I hope you knew that! ;))
This beautiful lace shawl is knitted from Estonian lace pattern with cobweb weight mohair yarn and 3.4mm knitting needles.
Crisis is over! Yesssss!!! ;)
By the end of last post I already had idea how must look my new cape!
Same evening designed pattern what has same shape as 'faroese shawl' but there are mixed three different leaf patterns. Now I have new problem ,have to buy luxurious yarn for it.
In local yarn shop caughtmy eye Louisa Harding's 'Grace' 50/50% wool(merino)/silk mix .....precious!(but pricey :( ). Have to go fishing to eBay! ;)
Afraid this project will be delayed until autumn because....
I was asked to knit lace shawl (for sale) decided to design new one .This time mixing four different patterns. Pattern will be available for public when knitted through.
But like always can't be patient and crocheted some flower pins this evening (for sale):
I am in deeeeeeep knitting crisis...:( (HELP ME,please!)
Want to knit lacy cape like thing or stole,can't figure out what it must be. Went through goldmines like adriafil.com , knittingpatterncentral.com , straw.com and some more.
Want something to throw over and it must be elegant, lacy, similar to faroese shawl .
But it must be closable at front.... maybe buttons....;>
It will be real challange for me! ;)
What have I done lately? (very late evenings included;) ) No time for my knitting projects.... Have been busy searching for gorgeous flowers in flickr photo albums. There are sooo many different kind of crafted flowers (photos) in albums so I decided to open group called Handmade Flowers . I already have some favorites there but they all are very well done crafts!
