Brioche shawl finished

Here's the brioche shawl I made based on Nancy Marchant's "Alex" scarf (Ravelry link here). I decreased and cast off each leaf separately, so there were quite a few loose ends to take care of. However, I made it easy for myself by using a crochet hook and simply pulling them through a number of brioche yarnovers.

Inishmore in progress

A Starmore addict I've cast on to make yet another of her designs, namely "Inishmore" from Fishermen's Sweaters. The yarn is Cascade 220, and I think this light colour works well with this kind of cable pattern.

I am going to have to tackle brioche because I love the stitch definition. Your textured knitting is wonderful.

More gorgeous knitting! I think the blue colour is perfect for the design.

The shawl looks like angel's wings doesn't it? Very Beautiful!

Some years ago there was a blogger who knitted many Starmore designs, but she also corrected them so that the patterns matched perfectly at the shoulder seams, which according to her, Starmore herself had not done.
