Nordic Wind Shawl # 2

My second Nordic Wind shawl was completed last night. It is knitted with Rowan Felted Tweed, a version that was knitted up at my local yarn shop. It is a much thinner and lighter wool and deliciously soft.


For those who have knitted this shawl, You will note that I finished the shawl's garter stitch border in a different colour. That's because I knew I would run out of the grey and I had lots of the navy blue left so I decided to give it a go. I quite like it like that!

Feeling a bit under the weather so I will say TTFN!

  4. Oh, this may be my favorite "Creation By Melissa," yet!! It turned out beautifully and that border is such a nice touch. I am ridiculously allergic to wool, so I could never even wear something like this, but I'll bet you'll find it very warm and perfect for a cool evening during these winter months...

    Hope you feel better soon, Melissa :)

  6. I just found your blog and I love your choices of fabric and patterns. I found you when I googled Vogue 8985; but your versions of the Kika pattern convinced me that will be perfect for the linen I have. Can't wait to try some of the other patterns I've seen Here.
