Wedding shawl

Wedding shawl by Asplund

Here is a colleague of mine on her wedding day a couple of weeks ago (haven't found any matching wallpaper of curtains for her to pose next to) in the shawl I was honoured to make for her. The shawl is greener in reality, which you can see in this post.



I've started knitting a pattern from a book I bought some time ago, "Water Lily" from The Haapsalu Shawl by Reimann & Edasi. This is a pattern that actually doesn't have any nupps in it - but I like it anyway ;-)

"Water Lily" shawl in progress




In the book it is used in a rectangular design, but I thought it would work well in a triangular shape. This shawl will be V-shaped, though: I've divided the triangle in halves and am knitting the first half in a way to make it slant outwards from the middle. It will be similar to this shawl, which I made a couple of years ago.

Breathtakingly beautiful, Asplund! (And you did well to photograph a leafy lacy item next to lacy leafy trees.) I recently attempted a lace project with laceweight wool, and had to abandon it after I failed on the fifth attempt. I just didn't have the opportunity to concentrate properly on it. Someday I will try again. So I'm all the more impressed with your creation!
