Shoulder Shawl

Hi Everyone! First I must apologise to everyone as it's been a very long time since I have last made a comment or a post due to my DH's illness. You can read more about it on my blog helenknits. Knitting has and is helping me cope in these tough times.

What I do want to post about is that I have finally finished my sister in laws 50th birthday present the beautiful Shoulder Shawl by Jane Sowerby. I gave it to her on Christmas Eve and she loved it. Yeah!!! And here are a couple of photo's of it. I used Debbie Bliss Pure Silk in Purple, it is a wonderful yarn to knit with and the colour is amazing. It blocked beautifully.
