Country Knitted Large Shawl

Hi everyone, sorry for being absent for so long from the blog. The fact is that since my accident last February I could not yet sew or quilt because of back pains. The only thing I could do was knitting a little, sitting straight in my armchair. Thus my shawl is the only thing I have to show lately. I already posted before a green shawl the same style, and a tutorial.

For this last shawl I decided not to crochet the border, to give it a more rural style, and I am very pleased with its final look. The result is exactly as expected. (It doesn't often happen!).

I used a wonderful natural and soft yarn : Fonty Fado 662 (9 skeins for the shawl and 1 for the fringes), that I knitted with needles no 5 (French).

I hope that my next post will be relative to quilting as since a long time I have in mind a project that I am so eager to start!...
