It's called the Whispering Island Shawl, a beautiful DK weight, textured shawl with a small amount of eyelet lace detail. I love this larger size shawl, knit in a heavier weight yarn, it's perfect for those cooler summer evenings to wrap around your shoulders to keep the chill off.
I did find with this yarn that a lot of dye came off onto my hands when I was knitting with it but it was a pleasure to knit with, very soft and luxurious.
I really like the variegated denim blue but I think it would look amazing in a solid colour to show off the gorgeous texture. I don't have very much DK weight in my stash but I will definitely be buying some to knit another one in a solid colour.
Helen has very kindly offered me a Whispering Island Shawl pattern to giveaway to one of you, all I want you to do is leave me a comment and tell me if you've ever knit one of Helen Stewart's patterns before and if you have which one was your favourite. I will close the giveaway on Thursday morning, the 19th June 9.00am BST.
Have a great weekend.
