It is no secret that I love autumn and quite like winter too really! So, even though it's still quite hot here, my thoughts have been turning to my autumn/winter wardrobe. I fell in love with the Canopy shawl pattern by Mandarine's and it was a quick knit, taking over just two weeks. I used Alpaca yarn bought from Holland Road Yarn Company and it is so soft with a little bit of fuzz to it.
So there's the first addition to my autumn/winter wardrobe! I am beyond words with how much I love this pattern and how I am really looking forward to wearing it when the weather cools.
Wishing you a wonderful week. Wendy xx
It is the Irish Sampler by Nostalgic Needle, designed by Sharon Cohen.
Stitched with DMC threads on raw linen.
I enjoyed learning some new stitches for this one, particularly the queen stitch for the large flowers under the letters. Now to find a home for it, at the moment it's sitting on top of the piano until I decide. I'm wondering about beside my woodland sampler in my bedroom ... what do you think?
