I’ve been knitting up a storm lately in preparation for the summer shows and have gotten a bit behind with sharing. My most recent FO is the stunning Veil of Leithen shawl by talented designer Renee Callahan, otherwise known as EastLondonKnit:
I knit this beauty up in less than one skein my new, delicious yak blend BEYUL in colourway Yurt – which I still haven’t had time to announce properly, but will get around to it in the next few weeks…I promise!
This summer shawl is a lovely top down mesh which finishes in a subtle lace edging knit on all at once.
A mix of the softest yak down, silk, and superwash Merino this blend is just perfect for this delicate shawl. You can see the delicate yak down halo and subtle lustre on the yarn in the photo below!
Renee is currently hosting a KAL with prizes in the Unwind group Ravelry page so you can join in there to win and see FOs. You can also wear your Veil of Leithen at Unwind Brighton on the 12th/13th July for a chance of winning a prize at the show!
