    I love the shawl. I know it is too late to join, but would you please tell me where I can buy the pattern and the yarn?

    Thank you very much,

    I found the pattern in the Victorian Lace Today book. I believe I can purchase the yarn from Pick Up Sticks. Please tell me the name (color) of the yarn.

    Thank you,

    thanks everyone 🙂 Lynette – the yarn is by Fleece Artist – it is Mini Maiden from their Hand Maiden line – and the color is peridot. I hope you enjoy knitting your shawl as much as I enjoyed knitting mine!

    I love that shawl. I have been trying to decide on one to knit, you may have just made up my mind… You did a wonderful job on it. What part of southern Alberta are you from? I’m in Calgary.

    I was wondering about blocking. Your shawl is beuatiful and I was considering – have started, actually, the diamond fantasy shawl using the same yarn. I love the feel of the yarn but wondered how hard it is to block to shape. Is it more like wool in that it takes and holds shape nicely or does it want to revert to it’s more relaxed state? thanks for your input.
