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.
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 :)
