oh halldora. this long shawl designed by Hélène Magnússon, the icelandic knitter, has come close to knitting nirvana. made with seventy grams, approximately one thousand yards, of lace weight cashmere. a gift from chuck on a trip to the habu studio and showroom in nyc last year...
knitting this true lace was a solitary experience
i'm so pleased to have made this particularly recherché heirloom knit. i may not have the wherewithal to do something as concentrated again (sorry dear husband for not talking to you for three months ;) but now that this shawl is here, so charming and delicate, so soft, warm, so fine...*happy!* thank you Hélène
