Silk Lace Wedding Shawl

A friend’s daughter is getting married soon.  Too soon for me to do something as special as my friendship with her parents and brother demands, so I’m loaning her the most spectacular piece of my knitting still in my possession.

The silk was dyed prior to being spun with teals, pinks, purples, and turquoise.  I did the spinning, and knitted this in 1993, so it qualifies something old, as well as something borrowed.  Here’s a shot of the edge.

This is a detail shot of the corner.
