3 LITTLE WRAPS

I haven't given up my love of lace, even though I have the itch to learn new things. The pink is the Swallow Tail done in Big Sea Silk. The red is the Shapely Shawl done in Colourmart cashmere. The blue is a version of a large neckerchief done in identical Tilli Thomas silk, one beaded, one plain. I'm currently working with another new yarn from Fleece Artist, called Sea Wool. It's merino sock yarn with just a little lyocell and sea weed. I started the Scotch Thistle lace stole from Heartstrings with it, but I'm not sure that it's really doing the pattern or the yarn justice. BTW, I have to say that the Scotch Thistle pattern is fun and easy with no provisional cast on. Very clever pattern that's not difficult and not so easy that you nod off before it's done.

The shawls are very nice. What pattern and book did the red one (2nd one in the picture) come from. It is very lovely. My sister lives in FL and it doesnt get really cold there, so I always struggle with things I can make her. That looks perfect. :)

ldsvenus,
The red wrap is actually from a pattern from Judy Pascale called Shapely Shawlette. Here's where I purchased the pattern:

hmmm, the one you directed me to is not lace. It's the lace between the solid rows of your red one that is catching my attention, did you alter it?

ldsvenus,
Don't know what to tell you. The pattern I used was the Shapely Shawlette. I think the picture on onefineyarn is poor quality and may be done with heavier weight yarn. I used heavy lace weight cashmere colourmart with size 9 needles. I think the one on onefineyarn is done in sportweight. HTH

Ah, she has two that are called Shapely Shawlette one also has eyelet and garter after it, that has to be the one, you just added more lenght to it, right? Your's is really pretty. Thanks for the info on what yarn you used as well, I havent knitting with cashmere before but I bet it will be a treat as I have knit with Yak and that was like butter going through my fingers. :)

I love your lace wraps--especially the thistle. I'm afraid I would be in a home for the criminally insane if I attempted it. They are all incredibly beautiful. Thanks for the treat! Duffy
