If you can’t make it to Lake Como…

‘Como’ is now up on Ravelry! As you can see, he’s a lightweight shawl, not too big, but not too small. He’s a pretty easy knit, too, but rather than simple stockinette between lace panels, I’ve used a variation of raindrop stitch, which provides a nice nubbly texture and actually looks like ripples on the wrong side. Indeed, if you liked, you could wear it wrong side out! Here’s a shot of the wrong side on the practice knit (the Scot wasn’t impressed when I tried to get him to wear the shawl).

But what about that Doctor Who episode? I always suspected Mary Poppins…

  1. That shawl looks beautiful, especially in such a gorgeously rich colour.
