Notes on the project
This shawl is another winner in my books. I was participating in a KAL in one of my Ravelry forums when someone posted a mash up of two of Nim Teasdales’s fantastic patterns and after seeing it, I decided that it would make a deliciously creamy, BFL and silk shawl. I love how it turned out. It’s got the beginning part of the Illumine shawl, with the center and edging of her Renaissance fan shawl. Together the two patterns make a fantastic shawl. I used #6, round, Japanese seed beads in Ceylon Snowflake by Toho to finish off the look. They’re a beautiful opalescent color and work well with white or off-white shawls.
Edited to add: Finally got around to dyeing this shawl a purple ombré. Love how it turned out.
