Last Janury, I made a trip to the Wollmeise brick-and-mortar store, and among others, I bought a skein of Lace yarn in the "Roter Himbeermund" colourway. I was looking for a long time which pattern would be used for my first real lace yarn - and I decided on the lovely Gail (aka Nightsongs) lace shawl, which is available as a free download on Ravelry (sorry, only for members - I highly recommend registering, if you're in any way interested in knitting or crocheting).
First was a long night of winding the yarn into a skein, and then some more long nights of knitting - but I really really really love the result:
And a closer look on the lovely lace pattern:
The pattern was easy to knit, and as I did not make it very large it was also quite fast. I've worn it quite a lot as a neckerchief to a white pinstriped blouse which looks fabulous!
