My Eyjafjallajökull Shawl is finished.
But first, an insight on the design:
“In March 2010, and then again in April the Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted on Iceland. On the news we saw spectacular pictures of the volcano, the lava, and the ash-clouds that disrupted air traffic across Europe. And whatever else the erupting volcano might be, some of those pictures were truly amazing, and my imagination started running wild with fires and streams of lava. Naturally this shawl had to be a circular shawl, so that the lava could start in the centre and work its way out.” says Anna Dalvi, designer of this beautiful circular shawl.
This is me and my friend Lisa with our finished shawls. Thanks to Hala for taking the photographs.
My shawl used 850 yards of Wollmeise Lace-Garn in a bright Versuchskaninchen WD. The soak water turned a colour of Mountain Dew!~ I’m glad it was the yellow that washed off and not the green. I do love the colour, just not sure it would go with any of my clothes. Also I need to re-block it as it came out to a measly 43.5 inches across, whereas Lisa’s blocked out to 50 inches.
