Wedding shawl

Shetland shawlAlexis has made a traditional Scottish wedding shawl for her soon to be daughter in law. It is a beautiful gift which has been expertly made and carries on a Shetland tradition which is an area Alexis knows so well and loves. One of the benefits of this group is we are able to naturally discover the things which are important to other people and the places they come from or have lived in. There is some good information and some excellent examples of Sheltand lace shawls in the Sheltlandlaceshawls site. They are fine, one ply shawls. That in itself is an achievement: spinning wool finely enough to be able to make one. There are plenty of examples of Shetland lace shawls on Pinterest and there are some lovely  , free lace shawl patterns  on the purlingcat.
