Fantastic pattern with other beauties in Grace Anna Farrow's pamplet A Fine Line featuring 6 shawls "in bold stripes with lace weight yarn".  Really hypnotic designs and gorgeous color combinations.  I hope to make a few more of the shawls in the the booklet.  The yarn is Isager Spinni 1 which I have seen at my LYS for ages but never tried until now.  I look forward to using it again.  I felt it was medium soft in the hand but makes an extremely soft fabric.  Spinni 1 is lace weight and comes in beautiful heathered colors and makes fine, even stitches.



I'm mesmerized with chevron stripes.
Tubular cast off makes a lovely finish but took me several evenings to finish.
Light, lovely and warm and an absolute joy to knit.  My Ravelry link here with some details on my changes.

  6. Thank you! The boots are three years old, made by Clarkes and I got them at Footwear Inc., a small chain of shoe stores in California, one is in my town. They are SO comfortable, I can wear them all day and not get tired feet. They have great support and are cushy inside. Still, I would like them replaced and am looking for another comfy Clarkes boot but have had no luck so far.
