Travelling woman

No, not me (well, yes me, but that's another story). Here is my Traveling Woman. (I never quite get the one l vs two l thing.)

It's a lovely easy pattern for a beginner lace knitter like me. I knit it with no mods to the pattern as written, and it makes a lovely wide but shallow shawl that can be wrapped around the neck like a scarf. Knit in Naturally Haven 4ply from NZ - lovely and soft, and very purple!

It's a little chilly here in November ... you might need it!

yep - I like that a lot. I think it might just need to be my first lace shawl

It really did fly off your needles didn't it?! Absolutely LOVE the colour. :)

I'm looking forward to making a lot of progress on mine after I finish off my Swallowtail - darn Nupps! ;)
