Preview: The Mermaid Garden Lace Shawl

Finally! It is on the wires being blocked so it is ready for this weekend's Wearable Arts Festival at Bass Rocks Country Club here in Gloucester. This is the shawl I have been working on all winter. I call it The Mermaid Garden Shawl because there are three distinctive lace patterns that remind me of seaweed, shells and waves. It is knit from 4 skeins of KnitPicks Gloss, a merino silk blend, in the color they call "Mermaid". I will be offering the pattern through my KnitYourTailOff site some time this winter.

This is the whole shawl:

I'll post more pictures when it is finished and on a model.

Thanks for reading.
