Lavender Shawl

In July I drove past the most beautiful Lavender fields.

Inspired by this I decided to cast on some yarn I had purchased from a company called Mo & Co based in Yorkshire. They were new to yarn shows and they exhibited for the first time at Yarndale.

The yarn is 90% British Mohair from Angora goats kept in Yorkshire and 10% British Blue Faced Leicester.

The colours were completely perfect purple and lime green I was looking for.

Here is the journey of the shawl from beginning to end which was photographed at Slimbridge Wetlands Trust.

I look forward to many hours of wearing this and showing it to the yarn suppliers at this year's Yarndale.

  1. Those colours are two of my favourite combos and you've used them to great effect. I bet the yarn suppliers will love it :-D
