Kleio a Work in Progress

On the needles at the moment is the wonderful Kleio from Romi Hill's Second year of Small Shawls project.

The shawl has techniques galore - short rows (garter), braids, lace panels, lace edging and did i mention braids.

The yarn: Old Maiden Aunt Alpaca/Silk in Selkie (grey) and Farsaig (Orange/Copper/Brown)

This sneak pic shows off the lace panel and the braids either side. It is really hard to get a picture of a now approaching 600 stitch crescent shaped shawl that does it justice regardless of the cable length.

Needless to say it is soft, squishy and stunning and I love it even if the braids are hard work.

A project that slows even you down? I don't think I'll have it on my short list! But it is beautiful and the colour choice is working well - and did I mention to braids? Lovely.
