A Short Woodland Journey

Well, that was nice, if all too brief. It turns out I had less yarn than I thought, which resulted in an extremely short Woodland shawl that I can just about wrap around my neck. It is a good think it is so wide, which makes it a comfortable wear. I love it though: the pattern design is beautiful and just the kind of leafy lace I like. At a later point I would like to knit the shawl again in a lightly variegated thicker yarn.
  • some leftover Merino extrafein from the Hamburger Wollfabrik, colourway 610 (burgundy)
  • 4 mm circs
  • row counter
  • tapestry needle
  • wire, pins and grandma's sofa for blocking
I had feared that the pattern may not come out as well as it did in the end. It is the lightest, laciest Woodland I have seen so far and I am very happy with its look after blocking. Mind you, even before blocking it looked lovely! After only two lace shawls I definitely know I really enjoy knitting these fine projects...
... though you wouldn't know it judging from my face (it's been a horrible week).


  1. Hallo Nadia!
    Dein neuer Shawl ist wunderschön geworden, das Muster gefällt mir sehr gut. Den würde ich an deiner Stelle auch nicht aufziehen :)
    Ich wünsche dir übrigens alles Gute und nicht zu viel Streß beim Umsiedeln!

    Liebe Grüße, Christiane

  2. It's so lovely!!! So, jetzt auf Deutsch. :) Du solltest ihn auf keinen Fall wieder aufribbeln!!! Ich finde ihn gerade wegen des dünnen Garns toll. Das ist sicherlich der schönste Woodland!

    Alles, alles Gute im Bad oder im Pool! :D Meld Dich mal wieder bei uns!!! Ganz liebe Grüße und fühl Dich gedrückt.
