See: Join us for a KAL on Ravelry until May 31st 2014, see: I love making shawls, so designing one was always something I wanted to do. This particular shawl brings a lot of nostalgic memories. It is designed with Orenburg Honeycomb stitch, a very old lace technique that comes from the Orenburg region of Russia. This lace technique uses only yarn overs and k2tog to create very complex and completely reversible lace patterns. Neat, isn't it? I am originally from Russia. I remember my grandma wearing shawls made with this lace technique. Thus the multitude of memories and the Nostalgia name for the shawl. This shawl is completely reversible, more so if you use one color only.

'Follow Me' to be notified of new patterns and project updates! My name is Elena Nodel, and I am a mom to a very industrious, busy, ever curious and adventurous little girl. She is my ever present inspiration for all my creative ideas. As she grows, she becomes more and more involved in my creative work, and actually does have a say in a final look of any given project. I have a Girly Girl, thus most of my designs are very feminine. However, lately I have started working on more unisex projects. I was born and raised in Russia, a place where knitting is a part of the lifestyle. I now live in British Columbia, Canada, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I am a trained microbiologist/immunologist , and have spent years doing scientific research. I am married to a like scientist, and his name is Peter. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive husband, and Maya is very lucky to have a father who constantly encourages her natural curiosity, and teaches her about the world around her - she has him wrapped very tightly around her little finger! I love working with natural fibers such as cotton or wool, and always try to use them.One thing I don't like doing is seaming, therefore I knit in the round as much as possible. It is great for me and comfortable for kids. And as a result, I usually design my garments to be worked in the round from the top down. Dare to follow?
