Toxic Bog & Lino Cutting
While this has turned out very pretty, I have to confess to being the tiniest bit disappointed in the pattern. I know from past experience that when knitting lace you can't judge what it will look like until it has been blocked, and generally a shawl will grow by about a third when it is washed & blocked. However, with this one, it didn't happen - the shawl remained quite small and is more like a scarf than a wrap. It is still really nice, but I would have preferred it just that little bit deeper - just my own opinion. It's on my Etsy shop now.
