Clara's Knitting: Leaf Green Lace Shawl


This piece of gorgeousness belongs to *me*, Clara made it for my Christmas present! It's as soft as it can be (mohair and silk), and weighs as much as a feather.

The main body is this beautiful repeating leaf pattern,


and each short end is made from knot stitch.

Her knitting is amazing. It is like an orchestral score, in silk and mohair. And she conducted.
