Wollmeise and lace!

If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook you may have seen this sneak preview of my first lace shawl pattern that I've been working on... 
This design has been a long time in the making (since 2011!) and has had many twists and turns along the way until it finally fell into place this last Christmas! I dug deep into my yarn stash and swatched many yarns before deciding it was time to use up some of my precious Wollmeise pure merino as the stitch definition it gives lace knitting is absolutely amazing. The range of Wollmeise colours are delicious and plentiful and the skeins have an added bonus of being 150g which gives me great sizing options too. I am very nearly finished knitting my first test and then the pattern can go out to my testers... if all goes well it may be ready for release around Valentine's Day! As soon as I've finished knitting I'll be back to show it to you all in its full blocked glory!
