Pharaoh-ese [ an Egyptian take on a Faroese shawl ]

Needle

US 9 – 5.5 mm
yarn
Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply – 1 ball 400m –  dyed with Landscapes Dye in Wild Rasberry, Sarsparilla, Clematis and one of the dark blues – forget which

I wanted a simple lace shawl in the traditional Faroese shape and couldn’t find quite the one I wanted, so made it up as I went along with the help of my Harmony Stitch Guide and a bit of maths and a large dollop of wishful thinking

…and , no,  nothing written down
Once it was finished and blocked, it seemed to take on an Egyptian feel – the feathered wings of Isis, and that arrowhead lace variation in the centre back panel suspiciously like the jackal head of Anubis.


I could claim to have planned it that way but we know differently, don’t we ?
