About 2 months ago, a friend in Victoria, a fellow Wollmeise-aholic, asked whether I'd knit a shawl for her in exchange for some yarn. Would I ever!!
She chose my Salsa Roja pattern
, which I was more than happy to knit again. She wanted it a little larger than the original version and provdied 2 skeins of Wollmeise 100% superwash in Magnolie Dark. It is a gorgeous colour and I truly enjoyed knitting it.
After adding a couple of lace repeats, the final measurement was about 180cm from side to side and about 100cm from top to tip. It was HUGE!
The hardest thing about this job was parting with the end result. I loved it!
I had half a skein leftover so I offered to make her a hat and she was happy with my petals and plumes pattern
. That was definitely a quick knit, taking me about two nights and only about 40g of yarn. Easy peasy!
They finally left my hands today and is flying down to Victoria as we speak. I hope you love the shawl and hat, and enjoy it, Jen. Thank you for my beautiful skeins of WM! It was a pleasure doing business with you!
