A Cobweb Shawl

This is my latest project, a cobweb shawl.  I'm about three quarters through it now and hoping to finish it before I go back to England.

When I'm not knitting, I put it away in this lovely basket, which I bought at Cracker Barrel.

The wool I am using is Pampas Linen Look. I don't think it's available anymore, but I like it.  It has a cotton feel about it so I thought it would be just perfect for the cool summer evenings.

The colour is more like the balls in the picture above.  The first two pictures make it look too dark.

I already have a waistcoat in this wool and these balls were left over.  I hope I have enough to finish it!  I'll let you know about that...

  1. It's a very beautiful shawl. I love the yarn you chose. A shawl is on my someday list.
