• Fiddlesticks!

We recently received a big shipment of the Zephyr Laceweight Wool-Silk yarn. It’s a beautifully soft blend of 50% merino wool and 50% Tussah silk. There are some great new colours.

Alison knit this gorgeous Peacock Feathers Shawl with the Zephyr Laceweight:

Here’s a close-up:

This was Alison’s first laceweight pattern – what a stunning accomplishment! Alison told us “… it was very straight forward to make and to block. I simply adhered to all D. Siemens’ instructions, right down to the needle size et voila, a lovely shawl!” I’ll say. More from Alison on the shawl’s esthetic appeal, “…it has a sheen and is gossamer-like transparent…” And did we mention, simply exquisite?

We have some other beautiful Fiddlesticks patterns, including the Lotus Blossom Shawl:

And the Paisley Long Shawl:
