I was so excited when Sharon Silverman, crochet designer and author of Tunisian Crochet: The Look of Knitting with the Ease of Crocheting, asked if she could use my Luna Laceweight yarn in a new design. And I was delighted to dye a brand-new colourway for her to work with.
The Moonmist Shawl pattern is worked out from the center back in one direction and then the other, to create a delicate piece of lacework so light that it fairly floats across the shoulders.
When she first described to me the design she had in mind, I saw it draped delicately over a beautiful evening gown. I imagined holiday parties, sparkling lights, glasses of champagne… I wanted to create a colourway as ethereal as the Moonmist Shawl itself…
As day slips away and the light grows soft, the Evening Fog rises up out of nowhere and gently transforms the world with a veil of translucent blue-grey.
This is over 100g of wonderfully smooshy Luna Lace Weight yarn, a 2-ply blend of Silk and superfine Merino wool that is amazingly light and soft to the touch. Where there are multiple skeins pictured, each is sold separately.
