Firs and Flakes Shawl

Ta-daaa! Finally I finished the shawl I began knitting two years ago - and I love the result. I bought the pattern and yarn during my visit to the Shetland islands. The shawl, which is almost cape-shaped, was not the easiest thing to knit (you begin with casting on 452 sts and then you get to struggle with 4 pages of knitting chart), but once I got the hang of it, I only stopped when the weather prevented me from sitting with such warm wool in my lap.

Jamieson & Smith's 2 Ply Lace Yarn (col. eggplant) and 2 Ply Jumper Yarn (col. chocolate) on needles size 4.5 mm - 410 g in total. The shawl was designed by Anna Zilboorg.
