2021 Treasures

Lime Tree Shawl

In 2021, I’m working my way through a book of Estonian Lace Shawls. The Lime Tree Shawl is made from a blend of wool from the Falkland Islands and silk. It drapes beautifully and has a subtle sheen. It’s perfect when sitting by the breezy ocean or on a Spring day.

The Hope Shawl is made from ultra fine wool and passes the wedding ring test — it easily fits through a wedding ring. It’s a perfect heirloom gift, or a wonderful accessory at a summer wedding.

Here is a selection of fingerless mittens.

Tea towels are in every colour of the rainbow. Not in a single towel though.

I found some yarn in a non-stash cupboard, then found a pattern to suit the yarn.
I adapted the pattern, once with Latvian braid, the other time with a pattern from one of my Estonian knitting books.
These Birdsong mittens in Melon and Slate will be easy to find.
The Birdsong pattern by Erica Heusser is one of my favourites.
