Oh I remember this one!

Unearthed in the emptying of the closet, safely inside a ziploc bag that only got wet on the outside (I cannot tell you what a relief that was) was this shawl, the precursor to the Wanda’s Flowers one in my book. I had been saving it so well and so long that I’d forgotten it. My Rabbit Tracks pattern starts and ends it and goes up the sides (with an extra stitch or two added at the edges) and I remember now, I knitted a rectangular shawl of just the flowers part for a dear friend twelve, fifteen years ago or so and afterwards wished I’d jazzed it up a bit more, which got me to try again with the flower part framed by my little feather-and-fan variant.

Grignasco Merinosilk. In a 100g skein, all of it used up.

I haven’t knitted a big project in a fine laceweight like this in a long time. I’ve missed it.

I hope this means you are going to wear it, and often.

Impressive closet. Sorry about the need for closet emptying, but I can’t help being glad that the shawl is seeing the light of day. It looks rather jazzy to me.

The orchids on the windowsill are nodding in admiration…

What a treasure was saved! Thank you for sharing this much with us.

I agree with Robin: it does look rather jazzy. 🙂

I’m glad you enjoyed the process and the medium.
