New Store Sample: Henslowe March 29, 2012 – Posted in: New in Store

We knew the Henslowe by Beth Kling was a must as soon as we laid eyes on it on Ravelry last Fall.  It took a little while to get to it but this beauty is now hot off the needles and hanging in the store. Our sample (pictured above) was knit using Louet Euroflax (linen) which we think shows off the unusual lace style of this shawl to perfection.

From the designer: “With a nod to Shetland lace shawl construction, Henslowe?s elongated shape, lacy curves and knitted-on edging strike a balance between practicality and style, traditional and modern.”

A breathtaking version in Red Label Cash Silk Single from Tanis Fiber Arts, knit by Tanis herself, can be viewed here on Ravelry. Of course we’ll need to make one with this yarn now as well!
