Faroese Flower Shawl
A few pictures of the Faroese Flower Shawl by Lucy Neatby. I knit it in Bernat Berella 4, meaning this to be an everyday shawl used to keep warm during our cold Quebec winters. Being allergic to wool, and not always able to afford my favourite alpaca, I often am forced to use acrylic yarn to get the job done. This is my second Faroese shawl this fall, there being a 13 year gap since the last lace endeavour.
This allergy is a regular PITA, as there are so many totally lovely yarns and colours - especially the hand painted offerings I dream and drool over on the internet sites - this is the only way I can enjoy them, more's the pity.
Please excuse the lack of finesse in the picture order, I don't have this blogging thing down completely yet.
