Warning: this is a photo-heavy post – I got a bit camera-happy in my excitement about this shawl!
Yarn: Posh Yarn Cecilia, 50/50 cashmere/silk, in the Fern colourway
This has been a joy to knit from start to finish. The pattern changed frequently enough to keep me interested, and the yarn was sublime to work with. I’ve been entranced and a little obsessed with it, and I have even seriously considered picking up my unfinished pink version and working on it again straight away…
I love the little alien faces:

Cute pointy edging:
The yarn moves subtly from blue green to yellow green, not enough to stripe the shawl, just enough to add depth to the colour.
I got to wear this for the first time last Thursday when I met Arienwen for the first time and we went to the knitting night at Iknit London together. I’ve got to know her through her blog, and it was lovely meeting up in person.
That is breath taking. It deserves to have its photo taken again and again. Well done!
Beautiful!! The color is just gorgeous and suits the pattern very well.
And who wouldn’t want to take a thousand photos of something so beautiful? Love the shots as well as the shawl – grest work on both fronts!
I do love it! The pattern is great and the yarn my favorite colour. I don’t usually wear shawls but I am very tempted to make one exactly the same!! It was great to meet up.Look forward to seeing you again next time I am in London!
Anna, this is spectacular! The colour is perfect and it’s sure to get you loads of compliments.
I just had to drop you a line because your shawl looks absolutly fantastic!
I have to tell you… your pink Laminaria inspired me to start one of my own, and while mine is moving much slower than your own (I still have preschoolers alongside my teenagers), I am loving the knit as well! Thanks so much for showing off the finished work so well… it reminds me what it is I’m working toward! And you do fantastic work (knitting and photography!)
You must be ready for spring with the greens. Love thw first photo.
that’s just fantastic. I love it to bits. Amazing photos, too.
That is simply gorgeous, well done.
It is gorgeous – that green – just divine!! I’m not surprised you took heaps of photos, it is quite the model!!
Ooooohhhhh. Looks lovely, especially in the green. Must finish current lace project, so I can start on this.
Beautiful. The lace work is stunning and the colour is gorgeous.
Anna, that is just stunning. Well done xx
Beautiful job. But the alien faces…I hadn’t noticed them before, and now that you’ve mentioned it, that’s what I see! Pretty aliens.
I’ve always loved this shawl. Yours is beautiful!!
Ok Im officially in love. The shawl is soo beautiful! I love the subtle variegation in the green yarn. Lovely!
I know Arianwen over the web too! How fun to meet up in person!
Lovely!! Well done you!
Stunning! And just the right colour for Spring too. It’s in my queue – must finish Lyra first though.
Absolutely beautiful, I love the Spring green!
It is stunning! I love how the color changes and the pointy edges are great!
Just breathtaking. Maybe lace isn’t so bad… if it looks like that!
Gorgeous! Where’s a pretty photo of you modeling it?! 😉
That’s absolutely beautiful! I, too, would like to see a photo of it being modeled.
Stunning! And it’s blocked to perfection – those points! Eee! That yarn is gorgeous and you’ve really done it justice. Wow.
gasp! its amazing!!! everything about it, the lace the colours. wow! anna, honestly i am speachless… and hope you’ll do the pink one some day 😀
Love your laminaria, I finished mine last week, and I agree it was an amazing pattern to knit, your yarn and laceyness are just awesome!
Ah! You’ve finished her! She’s gorgeous! I’m awe-inspired! Wow.
Oh Anna, it is just beautiful. I adore this color (I must admit that the pink would have been lovely as well, but I am a huge fan of green in any shade) – and your photos, wow!!
That is soo beautiful! Love the color! When I grow up to a big girl I whant to be able to knit like that;)
Anna, is is just beautiful.
Pink would be awfully nice… just saying…
absolutely stunning! the match of colour and pattern is perfect – you’ve done such a lovely job
That is beautiful, both the lace shawl and the photos of it. I especially love the depth of field you achieved in the top shot. Gorgeous!
Just lovely. The variation in the yarn is superb and the color makes me happy just to look at it. I’ve never tried lace, but I am tempted by your shawl!
37 comments!!! And rightly so!!! The green shawl is to get green about. Exquisite. And the photos – you’ve been taking lessons from Brooklyn Tweed haven’t you? No? Excellent. Excellent.
Absolutely gorgeous – wow! I love the yarn choice, and you did a great job. It is just beautiful. And your photos are gorgeous too – seeing yours makes me want to cast on for the shawl!
Stunning shawl, gorgeous colors, and superb photography! I think yours is easily my favorite of all the Laminaria’s I’ve seen! Amazing job!!
Oh my word… speechless, what a beautiful creation, I adore the colour, the yarn and the detail… again I need to say – detail…. Oh how I would love to be able to knit like this…. BEAUTIFUL…
Wow this is sooo lovely! I think it’s hard to find a varigated yarn that doesn’t overpower lace, this handles it beutifully! I wish I could touch it through the screen.
Beautiful lace, and great pictures with your new camera. The yarn has just enough color changes, not too much to hide the pattern. Great choice.
i found you via l’atelier. your knitting is so gorgeous, especially this shawl. i love the color!
This is simply stunning. The color, the lace…just beautiful all around.
It’s simply breathtaking (as others have already agreed) and I love the color and depth. Amazing.
That is simply stunning.
OMG the colours are drop dead gorgeous and the lace is so exquisite!
