Sanguine Gryphon Gaia Fingering Yarn in Color: Sundogs; US 9/ 5mm 40/ 100cm circular needle
What was your inspiration?
I designed and knitted the original version of this pattern in less than 48 hours as a last-minute gift to my godmother.
What are you most proud of?
How simply beautiful the combination of lace patterns turned out. Also, because of the way the shawl is shaped, it does not slide off your shoulders and does not require a shawl pin to hold it in place.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It's a fairly easy first lace project. I don't recommend that you kill yourself to get it done in less than 48 hours, but it's nice to know that you can if you need to, right? ;)
