Crystal Palace Shawl

This shaw was made using a free pattern from Crystal Palace with their kid mohair and Little Flower yarn. It was fun and easy to do, but the fringe may tangle easily. Jill seemed to like it!

Very pretty shawl!

The Latin name for Dame's Rocket is
Hesperis matronalis. It is in the mustard family...I love it.

We are getting more blooms opening up even though no sun still. The weather folks are promising that Friday we will have some though! I expect the garden to literally explode....should be fun.

You and Allie must be in desperate need of sun... I told her I'd send some, so you can expect your to arrive too LOL..
Your shawl is lovely, very dainty! Are you the model, Miss Judy??

Judy, I don't have your email so will answer here...
I haven't grown Scarlett Runner Beans but I bet they would be very pretty running up a fence or trellis. This year I have currant tomatoes on my trellis, just for a lark. (Yes, the tomatoes are as small as currants.)
I had to order Dame's Rocket (also known as Sweet Rocket) from an online plant source, Annie's Annuals. It was spendy but the healthiest plant arrived...and it's a biennial so after planting it last spring I had to wait and wait until this spring to see it bloom.
I found another version of it at Portland Nursery this spring...
I read somewhere that Spokane is the number one gardening city in the USA; Portland is second. You are bound to have some great nurseries there...
My roses are about to go nuts. Can't wait!!!!

Hi Judy
Your cloth succeeded to you very beautifully.
The color, and also the size, please me well.

Best greetings from the north of Europe

Pretty shawl, I like the color and the striping. I bet the fringe will flutter in the breeze more than regular yarn.

Thanks for letting me know where to get that shawl pattern -- I've been looking for a fairly easy one. You visited my blog and asked about the iris -- I don't know the name, my mother "rescued" it from the yard of a neighbor who had moved away and never took care of the iris. This is the first time we're seeing them bloom and the first time we've ever seen this color also.
