Heartland Lace Shawl





Pattern: Heartland Lace Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark
Yarn: Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk Georgette, 5 balls, colour: pearl
Needles: 3.75mm
Size: 58" x 29"
It's been a while since I knitted a shawl, and I forgot how fun it is. In the last couple of days there has been some serious knitting sessions because I was afraid I wouldn't be done before Saturday, but I made it with time to spare! I'm so happy with this shawl. I hope it brings the recipient some warmth and comfort. The yarn is awesome and the pattern was easy. The pattern is available free from Buffalo Gold. You have to send them an email asking for the pattern, and I got mine the next day. This shawl was so fun, that I think I will cast on another shawl right away!

Lovely work. I think a shawl in something more substantial is perfect for these cold winter nights...

Blessings!
