Wild Berry Wrap

One of my entries in the Creative Fibre National Exhibition.  Its handspun corriedale sliver from the Little Wool Company, one ply is variegated and the other a plain claret colour.  The pattern is Thao Shawl by Melinda VerMeer downloaded free from   I used 4 mm needles and just love the garter stitch combined with lace.  This is the first time I've used wires to block knitting and I'm sold, though I think its probably not a good idea to continue using the wires from my knitting machine combs.  Next challenge is to make up my own pattern.
