Ferryn

Poor Mildred!  Nothing to wear for weeks on end, and now that the weather is blazing hot, I expect her to wear a wool shawl! But Ferryn is finally blocked and ready for its close-up, so she is being a good sport about it.

I’m pleased with the result.  I had originally swatched this in a tonal purple yarn, but it  overwhelmed the delicate lace pattern:

Much better in the lighter, subtler yarn–in this case, Crave Yarns Filligree, a 75% Merino/25% silk blend:

As I’ve mentioned before, the design is by my friend, Claudia Donnelly–one of many of her great designs!
