Sneak Peek

Harbour Lights... she is now finito. Wanna see ????




Model: Christa Giles of podcast fame. Thank you, Xta!

The shawl is basically a top down triangle shape with a slim center lace panel, meant to portray a lighthouse, with the beams (seen above beaming over lovely Christa's right shoulder) shining down all the way to the waves playfully dancing at the edge. Beads are placed throughout the shawl with the crochet hook add-as-you-go method, and perhaps best of all, the shawl takes only 750 yards of fingering weight yarn!

I used a gorgeous fingering weight alpaca yarn from Alberta Rose farm (in Alberta, interestingly enough!), carried at Three Bags Full yarn shop in Vancouver. Shelley Mackie of Fun Knits has some amazing cashmere/silk yarn that is destined to be kitted up with this shawl pattern... so do look for that at the FibreFest/Knit-Out that is happening in Victoria in June.
