A Shawl long time coming.



 















The shawl was almost 3 years in the making and is to be raffled/auctioned off at the 35th anniversary celebrations for the Fairfield Spinners, Weavers and Dyers in raising funds for their guild. The Anniversary will be held at the historic Westacott Cottage Canley Vale opposite Canley Vale Station on August 18th and 19th 2012.
  Joan Fisher purchased some Optim fibre which is a Super Fine Merino actually decreased in micron size. Joan offered to the guild to be made into a shawl by me. It took quite a while to locate a pattern that would do it justice. In the mean time I hand spun about 50 grams of fibre. Ending up with about 700m of fine two ply yarn.


Approximatley 200cmx95cm and about 1000 white seed beads.
