East Coast Line by Susan Ashcroft

East Coast Mainline is a simple shawl I test knitted for stitchnerd. I love her patterns, they are always easy to follow and very attractive. The shawl border uses a technique called mosaic knitting which I had never tried before. I found it easy to knit and the pattern came out really well with none of the difficulties of keeping good tension on your floats that you have with fairisle.

The pictures were taken in some woods very close to where we live. I got stung by nettles and had to balance on a precarious log that has fallen over a stream, so I'm about 10 ft up in the air!
