This unusual ‘Manta Ray’ shaped shawl is a SPOTTED DOG Original Design!   The distinctive kite shape allows a second point of the shawl to drape over the shoulders whilst the traditional V-point of the shawl covers the lower back. 

All my shawls have names and a personal story behind their creation, however, the ‘Mended by Angels’ Shawl has a slightly more universal tale…

So in March 2020 I found this glorious skeleton leaf and wanted to make something leaf like and gold dusted, so I got out the vintage mohair yarn that I’d recently been gifted, and added bamboo yarn and cotton and some gold lurex and an odd ball of merino yarn, and got cracking with the massive needles to make a lacy fluffy gold infused Angel Wings Shawl – just the sort of thing to do to take one’s mind off the current Coronavirus pandemic….

Well, it turned out that knitting was anything but stress relieving because not only did I drop stitches and mix up the pattern, but I also didn’t notice my mistakes, and consequently didn’t put the mistakes right!

And by the time I’d added the sari silk tassel, I’d also had to revisit the skeleton leaf idea and weave in some gold thread features to compensate for the uncustomary erratic knitting….

So whilst I don’t wish to capitalise on uneasy times, I do think that the ‘Mended by Angels’ Shawl will be a reminder of the selfless work done by many to get us all through these troubled times……
