I finished Margaret's Shawl this week. Margaret raises Llamas and contributes fleece to a "wool pool" with other members of her Llama organization. She gave me a skein of her light tan two ply, about 800 grams, about two years ago. I kept trying to figure out what I wanted to do with this springy yarn. Finally I decided to make an original shawl, I have knit enough of other's designs already!
I found an old lily of the the valley edging design in an old German pamphlet, altered it to be able to have it symmetrical on both sides of the triangle, and invented a meeting point design.
Then I proceeded to just chart out some yo's and K2tog's and SSK's on a chart till it pleased me.
Voila! MY OWN DESIGN!
