Done and Done

Finally.  Finished the Shetland Lace Shawl #2 in record time to participate in Fiber Arts Friday blog-along.

Pictures are not great, but the shawl itself is different in that it is made from 100% organic linen from Quince & Co..  It softened up after soaking and blocking, although it was not blocked to points since I will wear it around my neck and those points would not show anyway. So why bother? is the motto of the day.

Here is the model wearing this shawl found in Allen and Budd's Wrap Style, but made in  wool.

Evelyn Clark's ebook looks interesting.  She has this pattern and others at that link.

Go here to see other finished objects this week.

PS: Son in law Jack took this picture yesterday.  Awesome, and not in the sense that kids say it today.  Jack captured God's presence right there in York, South Carolina after a spring rain storm.


  1. Oh my goodness, that is GORGEOUS! LOVE it! Have a blessed weekend dear Nancy, HUGS!

  2. I love the color! So many gold shawls being done right now. I need to get some new yarn. LOL!

  3. Beautiful shawls and love your attitude to not creating work which wont show!

  4. In awe of your awesome skill! Thoroughly beautiful shawl. Great job. x

  5. That shawl is stunning. How was it working with the linen? I know it's always rough when I weave with it.

  6. Lovely shawl. Is knitting with linen the same as knitting with cotton?

  7. Wow. That is a powerful spot there. Hooray on the ready to use lace shawl!

  8. What an amazing photo.

    Your shawl is beautiful, lovely work
