Most of this shawl was knit during my stay in London & Bath over a year ago. I would sit in the cafes in Islington and knit a motif or two of the lace, then hop on the train to Bath to finish it with a pint and a knitting buddy by my side.
So many nice memories in each stitch…
The shawl was designed to showcase “tweed” blends, but feel welcome to use any fingering weight yarn you wish - after all knitting is meant to be fun, right?
