Once upon a time there was a picture of a fiddle head fern....
Which became a colorway
Recently one of my test knitters finished the shawl in the attached photo....
Now consider the two of them together.
I wish I had more time to knit!
OK, I've thought about it and I can't see that pattern in a colorway maybe I'm too much of a purist or traditionalist but I love natural and white lace especially with that amount of complexity. I have to say the fiddle head fern colorway is also exquiste. Somtimes it just doesn't work to make one stunning thing out of another. Guilding the lilly comes to mind. If I had that colorway I would proabably knit it into a lace scarf but in a super simple pattern.
Did you do the dye job as well? You really are inspiring and I'm not just trying to get on your good side. :-)
No - Ray of Knitivity did the dye job. His colorways tend to be very short runs of colour - and I have found in knitting them up that there is a lot more blending that goes on then one wod think.
Beautiful shawl Mario. Is the pattern on the Yahoo site?
Not yet. It will be exclusive on Knitivity for a year - then I'll have it.

Who are you calling picky English!!!!!
My "to do" list gets rearranged way too much!
That's f*cking beautiful!
absolutely beautiful and once again my mantra I will try lace again, I will try lace again, I will try......OH LOOK SHINEY!

Exquisite! What yarn? How big is it?
That sample is in KidSilk Haze and I believe was about 60 inches prior to blocking.
