Here on the right is the lovely 'Cedar Leaf Shawlette by Alana Dakos.
I found the pattern in a booth at the Vermont Sheep
and wool. The yarn is from Dirty Water Dye
works, a very nice silk and wool blend. The pattern is available from www.nevernotknitting.com.
Loved it so much I made two. The second in 100% silk from Blue Ridge Yarns. It was so nice to work with.
If you want to try something new like the leaf edging on this shawl, I would encourage you. It is great fun. I get many compliments on this, I wear it as a scarf.
