Raspberry Lemonade Flower Basket Shawl


This was a really quick knit as it was done in worsted weight mohair mix yarn (Cascade Bollicine Etoile in raspberry lemonade shade) which was given to me in a yarn swap that I took part in recently. The idea was that we swapped yarn and pattern and all made a shawl with what we received. Knitting a lace shawl in worsted weight yarn was a first for me but it was a really quick knit (took only five evenings) and I enjoyed the pattern.








I had a few enquiries about the chocolate in the post below. it's made by Bloomsberry & Co and, yes, gjabouri, it is available in the US. If you go into their website, here, and click on your country, then click on enter site and then chocolate, you can scan the full range which includes emergency chocolate, magic fairy chocolate, oral pleasure, dark secrets, Dr Chocolate, etc, etc. The US has a much wider range than we have here in the UK. We only have the core range. :-( Bloomsberry chocolate is described as "delicious chocolate infused with a delectable sense of humour" and I think we could all do with some of that now and again (more again, really!)

    It's very pretty, Hazel. Had to take a look at the yarn swap project and I really like it!
    Boy! you have to be a fast knitter. It probably would take me 5 weeks to knit, not 5 days!!
