I am not sure if you all know this about me but I am a huge fan of Ambah O'Brien. She is a fabulous designer from Australia who I found through Instagram a few years ago.
Ambah designs the most fabulous modern shawls in the most fantastic array of colours. She is a constant inspiration to me and her patterns are so well written and easy to knit.
I recently got the chance to test knit (not my first time!) a new shawl pattern of hers, the Lamina Wrap. This is a great wrap that is designed to use up all of the scraps we knitters seem to collect. I know you have a basket of two somewhere!
My yarn choice for this was not my scraps but a tonal silver and a yellow gradient pack.
This shawl is simply amazing and huge and I love it! The lace pattern was very easy to follow and after the first couple repeats it was great TV knitting.
I am so happy with the out come. The fabric is light and airy and oh so soft. I cannot wait to wear it out all wrapped around me this summer when the nights are cool.
And here she is in all her glory!
