Tiong Bahru

I have a lovely friend Åsa ,whom I met through Ravelry and then met IRL for a coffee in Stockholm, who has become an incredible knitwear designer. When I first saw her latest creation I knew I wanted to make it for a special occasion.

A dear friend in Finland gifted me the yarn to cheer me up (Thank you Satu<3) and the yarn had been dyed by yet another talented friend Pirre... So you see this shawl is a real joint effort!

It took LOTS of pins and wires to block it but boy was it worth the effort! It's 150cm long and 50cm wide at the widest point and it's a lovely grey with just a teeny tiny bit of sparkle... I love it and will make another for sure!

Les plus fantastiques tricots qu'il m'a été donné de voir, sont les réalisations de Kaffe Fasset. Une grande expo au Victoria and Albert museum, à Londres. Un peintre qui a tourné *tricots *. Mais , actuellement, cela fait plusieurs années qu'il fait dans le patchwork.
Votre châle n'est pas du tricot, mais un savant travail de dentelle.
