I was so lucky that I could test knit this shawl for Lily :)
It's a beautiful pattern, easy and fast to knit. Just make sure you read the whole pattern befor you start knitting. I didn't, and felt a little dumb for a moment - totally missing that there was some short rows in the lace border... To my defence the kids was down with a fever and sore throat one by one, so my mind wasn't tuned in for knitting I guess ;)
It's hard to capture red in pictures... But it's a bit darker than these pictures. And I haven't blocked it because I don't have enough pins ;) I'm going to wear it around by neck, so I don't know if I bother either. Kinda like the way it curls ;)
Yarn: 148 g Baby Ull from Gjestal red #823.
Needles: 4,5 mm.
