Scarves and Shawls

One of my favourite types of knitting is Shetland lace, so here are some examples. The white scarf is the first one I made. It is in Jamieson and Smith 's cobweb wool, and the pattern is from Gladys Amedro's book "Shetland Lace". Since then I've made a few scarves that are my own variations on that pattern. The dark green one was made as a birthday present for my mother. It's in a merino/cashmere blend - so light, so soft!

More recently, I've been knitting shawls. One of the first was the Faroese shawl pattern from "a Gathering of Lace" (it is the cover pattern). I made it in jumper weight Shetland yarn,

I hope to get more shawl pictures up soon.
