Last fall at Rhinebeck, Margaret Klein Wilson gave me four skeins of her sportweight Mostly Merino yummy delicious yarn. Just handed them to me, asking, could you make a shawl from those? I said, sure, I'd love to! She had seen some of my shawls on this blog. I felt honored.
Well I finally did it! This is what I did during most of the month of March. Another top-down shawl, this time with a small ruffle at the end. It was to be a very simple design, using the 4 colors. Final size after a gentle blocking was 72 inches across, and 34 inches down the center.
Let us know what you think! The yarn and pattern are be available at Margaret's booth at this year's East Coast sheep and wool festivals and Stitches conventions, and while you can order the yarn from her on her website (check it for her classes and show schedule), the pattern is not up there just yet.
