Heartland Lace Shawl

I mentioned yesterday that I was working on a lace shawl, but I haven’t shown it here yet.

A couple months back I bought a bag of wool on sale at Spotlight (10 balls for $10), mainly because I just loved the colour. I tend to think of colours in relation to my mother’s paints (if only I had any skill with a paintbrush I’d be all set!), and this shade of French Blue is both my mother’s and mine favourite.

50% Bamboo / 50% Cotton

I’ve had my heart on knitting a fine lace shawl for a while now but, to be honest, have been far too scared to work on something so tiny – I’m getting there.

I thought this it would make a nice heavy drape and so I picked a more solid lace pattern. Fingers crossed it should be a nice winter shawl. I’ve not used a bamboo/cotton blend before, though, and am surprised by how bouncy it is. I’m hoping that it will be less so once blocking (and finished, of course).
