Finally finished, after nearly a year!
I used the Alpine Lace pattern to make a rectangular shawl but then shortened it slightly to use as a mantilla. As you may recall I made a long white one for my mother a few years ago. This time I used black and I made abut 18 center repeats and should have stopped about about 14. It is very long when blocked. Oh well, it makes a very elegant mantilla!
I used lace weight 100% wool but cant find the brand just now. I missed the presence of silk as I knitted it but now that it is blocked it looks very shiny and pretty so I don’t miss the silk anymore. Holds shape well.
