Much ado about nothing - knitted

I have a dilemma! My dear husband has bought me tickets for a theatrical performance of Shakespeare's Much ado about Nothing. I hear you asking "what is the problem?" My dilemma is that the performance is in July and is outdoors! Given that we have had snow this week in Sherwood, what will the height of Summer bring? So, what should I wear? After much deliberation, I have decided on an asymmetric shawl in Falkland merino lacewight, but what colour? I am at this moment in time in love with the colour Marian, a gorgeous golden yellow with mustard overtones.

I dusted down my beautiful vintage knitting needles and cast on, the pattern I am using is an old Shetland lace pattern called Acre (traditionally used for stockings) and will be worked on the bias to give drape. I will update you in due course on its progress.........

    Ah, the eternal question, what should I wear? I love the striking colour and the classical pattern you have chosen for an elegant summer night outdoors. It will enhance whatever you will wear with it, and it's good to be ready for any kind of weather caprices.
    We had a thick blanket of snow again here yesterday as well, but it looks like there will finally be light at the end of the tunnel soon.

    Hi Ruth, The colour Marian is beautiful and a shawl will be just right for a cool summer evening! When we were in the Alps at Christmas the snow was rather sparse, we even sat outside in the evenings with a warming stove to take in the beautiful scenery! But, I am glad Spring is on it's way for both of us :)
