As we write, it's proper January weather out there: high wind, grey skies and rain. But we've got the antidote to all of that grimness. We've got bright pink silk lace, the combination of very special new yarn and a lovely pattern! This is Heaven Scent, a stunning crescent shawl by Boo Knits. It's got a simple stocking stitch basis before the stunning lace border. And as with all of her patterns, it's extremely clearly written. If you're looking for something that's straightforward to knit and very impressive indeed, this is it. The beading is optional, but Jacqui couldn't resist (she used about 220 beads). Isn't the result spectacular? And the yarn? The yarn is Townhouse Yarns newest offering, Pembroke Silk! It's simply beautiful to touch, to knit with and to wear, and it comes in the brightest lustrous colours! It's fingering weight, and a skein is a generous 400 metres long. Townhouse Yarns is our inhouse hand-dyed offering, so we're very happy to introduce you to Pembroke. See? The day seems brighter already!
