I still remember the frustration yet excitement when I finished my first shawl a nd then, subsequently, the feelings that accompanied the other shawls that followed on - Shetland Triangle, Angel Lace, Swallowtail, Flower Basket and so forth. Yet , deep down inside, I've a lw ays wanted to k nit up something to call my own and finally, after nearly two years of reading, knitting and plotting, A Leaf In A Leaf awaits. Based on the Leaf Lace stitch from Knitting Lace Triangles by Evelyn A. Clark, I was inspired to add in nupps - nupps that I ha ve seen earlier in the Swallowt ail - together with this stitch, creating a tiny leaf in, well, a bigger leaf. This shawl reminds me of the joys of spring and the colours o f autumn, conjurin g up vivid pictures of leaves floating gently in the breeze. I've knitted this in smooth laceweight yarn (KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud) with a regular 4.5mm needle, creating a floaty yet drapey shawl. FINISHED SIZE 46” wide across the top edge and 19” long from the center top edge to the tip, after blocking YARN About 500 yds of laceweight yarn for 10 (and above) number of repeats (KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud was used for this project, which features just 8 repeats – less than a full skein was used!)
