I'm all about that lace, 'bout that lace...

Pattern: Lehe Square Shawl by Nancy Bush
Yarn: Austermann Kid Silk
Needles: 4 mm

I've had the book Knitted Lace of Estonia in my bookshelf already for a while. But although the shawls are really beautiful and inspiring, this was still my first project from it. And I LOVE it!

Too bad it's not for me! This was actually a combined wedding present and a farewell gift for a colleague that's moving abroad for a couple of years. She chose the yarn and colour herself.

It took me over a year to finish it because I actually got a bit tired of knitting the center part of the shawl. But once I was getting closer to the finish line I found my inspiration again and knitted the last third in only a couple of weeks.

I have to say it feels absolutely wonderful to finish something after such a long time!


  1. Helt otroligt fin! Jag kan nog förstå att det var ett jobbigt projekt.

  2. Tack! Inte var det väl egentligen så jobbigt, främst tidskrävande :)

  3. So lovely!!! Somehow it's always the centre panel that tests the nerves and endurance!

  4. A-L: Thanks! :)

    Berenike: I know!! The center part just feels so much bigger than the lace edging, even though the difference isn't really that big in the end.
