Today’s Table – Death of Shawls

Yes, I have done it again. I have completed my most recent large art piece.

A wonderful friend of mine very generously purchased me some gorgeous, luxuriant silk back in July last year.

I was determined to finish what I was working on before picking it up so that I could devote my entire attention to the soft pink cloud of silk.

What I was in the middle of at the time was the giant Estonian piece.

But with that successfully delivered to it’s new home, I was free to create from a pattern I had been dreaming of for a long time.

So without further ado, here she is, the Death of Shawls!

Isn’t she beautiful?!?

She is 1400m of pure mulberry silk, and possibly one of the softest things I have ever created, with the most amazing drape and fall across the shoulder when being worn.

I’m so enamoured with this piece! I can’t wait to wear her more often. Right now though I’m protecting her from the zippers in winter jackets!

In other news, she wasn’t such a good traveling piece, so I have also been working on some mittens …

… and I finally have a cardigan in the works that I have been planning for … an embarrassing amount of time really. I’m hoping it will be completed just as the weather hits the perfect wearing temperature.

So far, I appear to be on track!

So, what do you think? Do you like them? *grins*

  1. Congratulations! The shawl looks lovely! 🙂

    (I like the yarn for the mittens, too. Are you making up the pattern or following a model?)
