Echo Flower Shawl

This has dominated my last month of knitting. This shawl is slated to be sent to a friend (the owner of Three Fates Yarns on Etsy) to be a sample to hang in her booth. It is laceweight Merino/silk, called "Lachesis" and it is hand dyed by Stephania.

And it is wonderful.

This is a really lovely yarn base, with just the right balance of spring, softness and sheen. It is strong enough to handle some very serious lace knitting (3-into-9 and 9-stitch nupps, for those in the know) and come out looking wonderful.

I'm very pleased with the project and very glad to have it done.

I'll leave you with a little gallery of just how pretty this shawl can be.
