Another hap shawl. Triangle this time.
21 march 2015 - blocking with needles, can’t find my wires.
BO as in pattern (ripped the first one).

Total weight 190 gram. (MC 100 gram)

A very dark natural brown for MC. Thinking of some my mushroom dyed yarns for border. Picking colours from the Shetland textiles book by Laurentson (the first picture).
Looking for colour inspiration I found out that I have what It takes to use a traditional Shetland colour scheme in my stash. I have been dyeing yarn with plants and mushrooms for many years. I have yarn using indigo (blue), lichen (brown from the lichen mentioned in the book) and my red and yellow is dyed with mushroom (traditionally dyed with lichen). Wrapping yarn around a paper to decide the striping order.
+ 30 grams of bits and pieces not listed above.

8 extra rows of feather and fan (58 rows).
Small mods to the edging. Easier to use a DPN. Knitting k2tog allover, and lifting the first s with yarn in front every odd no row. One extra edge repeat.

The Gudrun Johnston Shetland Hap Shawl class. This pattern (and the Half Hansel version) is a part of the course material.

A KAL for this one at The Shetland Trader group.
