Little Neath Shrug


Another sample knit for Alison Crowther Smith, this is the Little Neath Shrug.  

It is knitted with one strand each of Rowan Kidsilk Haze and Rowan Fine Lace, held together - this is a lot easier than you'd think, the combination is very well behaved.  The sleeves are soft and loose, knitted with a gentle rippling texture to the fabric and dotted with little garlands of beads, held in at the wrist by a simple cuff in twisted rib, which provides a nice contrast.  The tops of the arms and the back are worked in a simple lace ribbing - very pretty, and easy to knit.

The fabric is the star here, though.

Another really pretty thing! - I do love having all these lovely things to work on.   This one is now all packed up and heading off to the Post Office in short order.

Still knitting here - something completely different.....
