Vigne Shawl

Recommended Posts

I recently completed this pattern in some special yarn and gave it to a special person.

The aqua yarn is Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd's Wool Fine which i received in the Hometown Swap a couple of years ago From TonyaL.  It is just beautiful and one of the softest yarns I have ever used.  She sent 2 skeins and I think I used all but about 2 yards so it worked out great.  I thought the yarn was so pretty that for a long time i kept it displayed in the open so I could look at it all the time.  I finally stored it away to keep it from getting faded or too dusty.  But shortly after that i saw this pattern and decided to ask my friend if she would wear a shawl, which she said she would.  

 

The gray yarn is Alpacas d'Auxvasse Alpaca Sock, alpaca and bamboo blend.  it has a quite different texture to the wool and is a bit bigger and it worked very well for the contrasting sections.  So this is a  special yarn as the producer is local to me.  

 

The pattern is Vigne Shawl from the book It Girl Crochet.  I thoroughly enjoyed making this pattern, love the geometry of it.

Kathy this is beautiful I love the colors together. I am so glad you could use the yarn and that it was so soft. I am always nervous buying yarn for someone else since I know how picky I have become in what I buy for myself.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments! Tonya, you shouldn't have worried at all about the yarn, it is scrumptious!

I really appreciate all the nice compliments!  I really enjoyed the pattern, would highly recommend the book.  For anyone in the US, you can probably check it out via your local public library :book
