Apple Green Shawl
The center of this shawl is Emily Ocker's Lace Garland and the border is from Marianne Kinzel's Rose of England. The Lace Garland pattern was a different gauge than my yarn and needles were giving me and the shawl was going to be too small. The border in the Rose of England is nearly identical to Lace Garland and there is plenty of room in the pattern to make it as large as I like without rewriting the pattern. The yarn is Araucania wool/polyamide and knits up quite nicely.
After the heavier worsted weight shawls I knitted during the fall and winter I decided I needed something a bit lighter but still warm enough to keep the chill off me at Mass when the A/C is going full blast.
