A very Swedish Nordic Shawl


I started on a new Nordic Shawl not long ago. I chose darker colors this time, more Swedish folklore tones like traditional dark Falu red, okra yellow, forest green and of course a Scandinavian blue and some details in pinks... I also added a couple of rows on the base to make it slightly bigger.

Today I am working on the edging and I should finish it within the ext day or two. It is coming with me to a market I am attending next Monday. A Christmas gift for someone I am hoping. Although I love it so much I am tempted to keep it. Maybe I'll over price it, to avoid having to part from it.

NOTES:

Ideal yarn from Bergere de France.

  3. Swedish Nordic seems to be a great combination!
    Well done, nice colours.

    I once wrote you that I was working on a quilt that looks very much like the one you have in the banner of your blog.
    Well, after working almost one year , I finished it. Here it is: http://www.homeiswherethedachshundis.blogspot.be/2014/11/granny-bloemenquilt-vol-liefde-en.html
