This shawl is from a Creative Knitting (July) pattern...I really never thought I'd knit anything from this but it is a fairly straightforward lace pattern and I wanted to make a summer shawl using Hand Maiden, this gorgeous wool/silk yarn from Fleece Artist. The colorway here is pastels in reds, yellows, blues, absolutely gorgeous. It's an easy pattern that I can do for 'mindless' knitting.

Don't you just love the new Handmaiden yarns? I'm doing a similar summer shawl using the silk "Rumple". Also have a skein of "Silk Spun" - the pattern with the skein is a wrap, but very skimpy depth wise. Should have bought another skein :( - but at $30 for the Spun, it sure adds up fast!
