This shawl uses the Armorique pattern by EclatDuSoleil. Again, I used some of my stashed Wollmeise, but this time in a 100% superwash sock yarn in the colour Sabrina. The Mister had a lot of problems capturing the exact colour, but he tells me that teal is always an absolute bugger to get correct. So these photos show the shawl to be much bluer than it actually is. It's really a very green teal - that colour that a stormy ocean gets down at the South Coast in the middle of winter.
You know what I mean.
Doing the leaves on the last row was a risk, as they were took a lot of work and I was sure that I was destined to get two leaves from the end and run out of yarn. In the end I had about 2 metres of yarn left, so the risk was definitely worth it. Plus I think they give the shawl a totally unique look, almost bohemian. But not old-fashioned!
