Finished – Shetland Snow

I started this shawl on January 1st in a burst of enthusiasm for the 10 Shawls in 2010 challenge… and then became sidetracked by designing and knitting Brangian and her variations. So, my Shetland Triangle languished, with me picking it up and knitting a few rows every now and then… but I decided a few weeks ago to start finishing up some wips, and now I’ve finished this one.

Each year, at the Romance Writers of Australia conference in August, there is a silent auction with all funds raised going to cancer research. Last year, I wanted to donate a lace scarf, but I struck a problem in adapting the pattern and didn’t manage to get it finished in time. So, this year, I’ll donate this shawl along with some signed books to the auction.

It’s a grey, rainy day, so it was a challenge to photograph her:

Pattern: Shetland Triangle. Yarn: Bendigo Luxury 4 ply

Pattern: Shteland Triangle. Yarn: Bendigo Luxury 4 ply

The pattern is the wonderful and easy Shetland Triangle (Ravelry link), by Evelyn Clark. The yarn is 4ply Luxury from Bendigo Woollen Mills. I also added beads from Empire Beads to the last two repeats and the edging (Czech seed beads Round Pearlised White 4.5mm GB5/0):

    Oh a white one! Inspired! I have some white laceweight – you’ve got me thinking. Beautiful!

    Bells, I’m not sure why I picked white for this one – maybe it was just the only thing I had 200gms of yarn in at the time! But it has come up beautifully, and the beads work perfectly with it. So, I’m a happy knitter 🙂

    I followed a link on Bells’ blog to here. Lovely shawl, I’ve done a couple of that design and several more patterns from Evelyn Clark too. I’ve just bought your Brangian pattern after seeing Bells’ write up of it. Shawl fever still has me in its grip.

    Beautiful, really breath taking. I love it. Can’t wait to see what you do next and looking forward to seeing some of your new designs.
