Finally Final Forest Photos!

We enjoyed a wonderous day off on Saturday (we have one day off per fortnight) so I took the opportunity to take some shots of the Forest Canopy Shawl-ette before sending it off.

The yarn is so utterly delicious, I'd love to knit with it again and luckily I have half the cone left so I shall!

The leaves in the lace pattern of this shawl always get me - I love the shape and curve, so many lovely leaves - a canopy indeed!


Gratuitous close ups of fabulous yarn and heart-swelling lace are always so addictive - I couldn't pick between them!


The only way to wear it really is around the neck since it's quite little. Too small to wear draped over the shoulders.

Forest Canopy - size (3)

This shawl ended up just the right size to wear like a neckerchief; once around with the large triangular point at the front, and tied under the neck. The little tails only just made it!

I feel very affectionately fond of this little shawl and know it will go to its recipient filled with good wishes and warmth of heart :)
