Dream Time Shawl

IMG_8841I’ve called this blog Dream Time Shawl because that’s what its designer Teresa Dair called it.

This project has been on the go (or off the boil) for several years since I bought the pattern and the yarn at the main Perth Craft Show when Dairing (www.dairing.com.au) was still coming to it from Victoria.

Knitted in garter stitch on 7.00mm needles and a cotton chenille slub (DM50x120gms), it is simply a large rectangle of approx. 2m x 70cm.

Its real attraction for me, with my leaf fetish, is that the fabric this yarn creates reminds me of scribbly gum.

Scribbly gum is a name given to a variety of different Australian Eucalyptus trees which play host to the larvae of scribbly gum moths which leave distinctive scribbly burrowing patterns on the bark.[1] Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scribbly_gum

Thank you Teresa for devising a “pattern” that showcases this yarn so well!
