Estonian Garden Wrap is Done
This is the most beautiful shawl I have made - and what a pleasure to make! I started with a provisional cast on for symetrical edgings. It was an easily memorized traditional Estonian lace pattern. The 5 stitch nupps on the lily of the valley border were a little slow, but definitely worth the time and effort! It feels so elegant, soft, light and airy yet warm.

Estonian Garden Wrap by Evelyn A. Clark
KnitPicks Shadow heathered merino wool (880 yards) Oregon Coast colorway
Bryspun straights 3.5 mm
Here are a few boring blocking pictures for anyone that might be interested.......
The Oregon Coast colorway blends right into the carpet so there is not much to see. The only place I use pins is on the ends - the long edges just stick on the rug where I stretch them.
