lacewing

Posted on Posted in patterns

this sheer faroese shawl has allover movement thanks to a pretty stitch pattern with lines that fairly shimmer. all the elements of a sunny summer meadow in one neat package that sits smartly on the shoulders. and the bugs don’t bite.

shown here in knitting notions classic merino lace yarn, colorway pear (just one of many desirable color choices).

this project made possible thanks to catherine for her generous yarn support, enthusiasm, and test knitting (i wanted to add her ravelry link but ravelry is down at the moment).
and to jocelyn, who is finishing her edging as i write this and is a constantly encouraging, excited, and incredibly helpful teammate (M-M-MWAH!)
and thanks again to rachel whose ability to find the things we all miss is very much appreciated.
and of course, what would this post be without david’s camera work? thanks babe.

  1. Congratulations on the release of this simply stunningly shawl. I just adore the drape and wrap of this shawl. Thanks so much for your never ending inspiration.

  2. Beautiful! So pretty! I love how the main pattern seems to zigzag just a tiny bit, so lively and fun.

    Yes, yes, I must finish Whispering Pines before I start something else, I’m still on the first half of the edging.

  3. Anne, every time I visit your blog I find pictures of you in a new shawl. They’re all stunning. How do you do that? Where does your inspiration come from? Do you sleep at all? How many of the shawls/ scarfs do you own?

    PS: If you ever decide you have too many, I will be happy to adopt them ;o)

  4. I’ve been watching the progression of this shawl, and I think it’s fabulous! I’m off to buy my copy! Thanks for sharing your genius with us!

  5. Stunning! I’m off to join everyone else buying this. I don’t know how you do it! You must be the world’s fastest knitter!

  6. Elegant and lovely. I too wonder how you manage to knit so fast, I am jealous. Must have that pattern though. Beautiful.

  7. Beautiful! This is the next shawl I’ll be working on after I finish Bee Fields. What’s even better is that I’ll be at Stitches Midwest today and I’ll be able to get some lovely lace weight to use. Thanks for all your hard work and your amazing design skills.

  8. The way that your moves over this pieve is amazing. It is just a stunning creation. I kow that I have said it before, but you are just incredilbe! Off to purcahse this one with everyone else.

  9. I have no idea what you’re saying by “I’m not a good shawl wearer”. I think you look fabulous! What a classy shawl, you are such a talented designer!

  10. Anne- An amazing team effort- test knitters, editor, designer and of course, photographer.

    A great image sells patterns, never underestimate it.

    Love the lipstick too!

  11. Anne,
    Teresa is right…the shawl looks beautiful on you.
    These are your best photos yet….great job David!

    I especially like the tree shot with the shawl wrapped completely around you.
    Have a wonderful visit and see you next week.

  12. Beautiful! I’ve a question, about yardage, though – I’ve some lovely golden yarn in my stash, but only a bit over 1200 yards. Could I make it stretch for this beauty, or do I need to find something new?

  13. The photos really are stunning and so is the shawl, of course. The third photo from the bottom is my favorite. What a beautiful tree.

  14. Oh Anne, I have been waiting on pins and needles for this – now I can toss away the pins (until blocking time) and get busy with the needles!

    Thank you so much – it is truly glorious.

  15. I agree with everyone else! Breathtaking! Georgeous!Stunning! Beautiful! I love it! Like I love all of your shawls. Thanks for creating another beauty.

  16. Congratulations on the “birth” and launch of yet another gorgeous pattern πŸ˜€ It is absolutely lovely πŸ™‚
    Speaking of Lovely, I will have more eaving in the next update (september)….AND….I think I managed to nail that Chard after all…

  17. Although it’s hard to say what’s your most beautiful shawl ever, this one is certainly in the running. And it also looks as if it will be intriguing to knit.

    David’s photo shoot of this design is fabulous; he certainly knows how to bring out your best.

  18. Another WoW!!! (OMG) it’s a must have….just ordered…Lovely, spectacular!!! The best yet!!!

  19. It’s gorgeous. I am envious of Debby (2 posts back) with her Marigold stole, in that she can somehow wrap it around her shoulders and look great. I have an awful time keeping a shawl or stole on and wish I could staple it to myself so I wouldn’t have to endlessly fuss with it (I think this is just me because I see women wearing shawls and looking great and walking around and everything). The faroese shape may be the answer. It sits so well on your shoulders that I imagine that you (and maybe even I) might be able to engage in an activity and still not have it slip off. I love it.

  20. Right back atcha, babe! I finished it last night, and posted pictures this afternoon — this one is a masterpiece. And you are amazing!! πŸ™‚

  21. This one takes my breath away!! What a beauty…so fine and elegant. and the color is to die for!! Make room in the car for me, ladies! I’m going shopping too!

  22. Just stunning, as usual. Saw Catherine’s in person at Stitches today. Her yarns are so beautiful and I can see why you use it.

  23. Exquisite! Beautiful design, amazing knitting and modeling, artistic photography!

    I can’t wait to try this pattern…it will be such an interesting challenge. The main problem will be deciding on the yarn color-that will be a struggle!
