Shawl Spread out looking like wings
When you take a trip, you try and plan the right clothes! you get mixed up with what you want to leave behind or take to make sure you have enough...
There is a nice story behind this shawl...It was my first Lace one ....and when I made it I really didn't know what I was doing :o)..I had excellent help from a shop keeper in NJ....she guided me all the way...It was a very small shop (knit knot, if I remember correctly)...but she listened to what I wanted and surprising later years when I finally knew what I had done and what I had , I was elated and I bless her soul every time I wear it...it's made of wool and I believe nylon (in those days nylon was big, guess bamboo takes the place now).
I have thrown it in the washing machine and dried it in the machine (now slap me)!
You know it was good fabric to have been mistreated so .. I decided to stretch her out on my board so all the points would show up as they should...it has to be done in stages it's so beautifully large :o)
